Perhaps it would make sense to extend delete-indentation to apply to
active regions in the same way as commands like replace-string,
whitespace-cleanup, etc.  This could make "unfilling" a paragraph as
simple as M-h M-^, perhaps with an intervening C-n to move point to
the desired position.  Alternatively, a bare negative prefix argument
(M-- M-^) could trigger that behavior without need of an active
region.
