drag & drop selected text

I'm wondering if there is a preference setting that would change the behavior of drag&dropped text?
To wit: it would be MUCH more pleasing and helpful if selections that are dragged and dropped, keep their selected status, that is, retain their special "selected" highlight color once they ended up where you dropped them.

Also, after a drag and drop operation of selected text, the insertion point seems to end up at the end of the text which I find a lot less useful than if it ended up at the beginning of the text. Of course this would not be an issue if my suggestion above for retaining selection status was in force.

anyone else bothered by this? because this small detail really slows down my work.

thanks
Phil
