This makes sense to me (and during my begin-edit-sequence audit I went by
"should this count as a separate undo step?"). I do not mean to be
disputing this.

That is, IMO, shift-left (& co) should not be sensitive to this. It should
be sensitive only to "what was the last time that the start and end points
of the selection were the same?" (counting a click and drag as first
setting the start and end points the same).
