I find this pretty surprising.

I wanted to understand what the "cursor" was -- it's not an Emacs term I
knew -- so I looked, and the elisp manual says:

   As far as the user is concerned, point is where the cursor is, and
when the user switches to another buffer, the cursor jumps to the
position of point in that buffer.

So by that definition at least, it should be called.

Or, I suppose, "cursor" should be redefined.  Though what would that way
be?  My mental model was something like "point in the selected window".
What else would make sense?
