Yes, that's exactly the point. The only face I see that needs to be extended so 
far is the region. If only the region is extended (assuming we won't stop 
extending that one too) you won't need your workarounds, extra settings, 
another flag in the face structure, or call extend face to end of line most of 
the time.
