It's a bug to not be sensitive to transient-mark-mode. That's the fundamental premise of enabling this minor-mode. The user is indicating that the region he's interested in will always have the mark active and be highlighted.

Emacs already has built-ins that respect this -- region-active-p. Why not just use that?

That is not true for Emacs 22.

In Emacs 22, transient-mark-mode is nil and there is no region-active-p function.

iedit-transient-mark-sensitive make it possible to use iedit without highlighted region.
