I agree with you.

In Emacs 20, region has "gray" background and
secondary-selection has "paleturquoise" background.  I think
this color pair is much better than the current one.  I
think, at least, it is better to swap the current colors of
region and secondary-selection.  If we run Emacs 21 in
reverse video, their colors are set more reasonably ("blue3"
for region and "SkyBlue4" for secondary-selection, thus
region has stronger appearance than secondary-selection).

Another issue: color of highlight.  In reverse video,
"darkolivegreen" is used for the face highlight, but with
this color, a text is not that highlighting.  I think making
it the same as what selected in normal video mode is better
(i.e foreground "black", background "darkseagreen2").
