If you want more reasons to see why it would make "visual" sense, have a
look at this test:


This spawns from the idea that sometimes, instead of highlighting, it
makes more sense to "de-light" text: i/e attetuate the stuff *around*
the selection/mark/region instead.

The trouble with this, as for my request, is that you'll want the
"delighting" effect to continue beyond EOF.
