If what is meant in any interaction influencing one thing with another, then 
is interactive.  The result is that the use of interactive ends up having no 
value, because
of its inability to discriminate anything.

For this reason, interactive should represent a specific thing, specifically 
Because emacs is fundamentally a user defined environment that accepts user 
input during run-time.
I personally distinguish traditional coding directed towards automation, and 
that interact directly with the user in the form of text.  In this context I do 
not consider taking
the position of a region as user-interactive because the user is mostly 
oblivious to those numeric
