I am saying that those functions’ behavior doesn’t meet the requirements of word transformations. I don’t know how changing their behavior so that they never contract the selection will affect other uses. I also don’t know exactly how to do that. I tried, naively, to make VisibleSelection::expandUsingGranularity set the base and the extent to the start and end before calling validate, and then restore them, but that wasn’t quite right: it produced word selections that included the trailing space after the word.
