Oh, of course, while inserting the stuff your specified end position
gets outdated.  You can use a marker instead of a number:

  (copy-marker (region-end))

it will automatically be adjusted.  Arithmetic relations like `<' also
accept markers, so you don't need to rewrite your code.

BTW, your function calls `region-beginning' and `region-end' in the
interactive spec and a second time in the function body: The function
arguments BEG and END are ignored in the body.  That makes no sense.
