it very well might do that, but the question is why highlighting a region is
not a part of the undo sequence - it should be, shouldn't it?

The highlight doesn't change the buffer, therefore it is not undone.
So this is by design, albeit contrary to your expectations.

well, that's the thing - I am a user, not a computer, I don't care if typing keys changes the buffer or not. As a user I expect the undo sequence to exactly follow my actions in the reverse order. I just checked - even MS Word does this (brings back the highlight in the undo stream).

Too bad emacs' designers did not think about it this way - it wouldn't hurt to have this feature even optional if someone finds it objectional.
