For example, changing the way something as fundamental as regions work in a very mature editor is just a bad idea. A really really bad idea. By all means, define some other type of region and let that have other semantics, or, let users opt in to incompatible regions by having them set a variable in their .emacs.

Like Eli, I really wonder what this means. I've been using Emacs for about 25 years, and I've not seen any change in the way regions work.

Perhaps he is talking about transient-mark-mode?

I don't think so. It was introduced in Emacs 19 (almost thirty years ago!), and it only requires (transient-mark-mode -1) in .emacs to be disabled.
