I certainly don't want to distract you from rendering performance, but 
as long as you have your head in the selection indication code I wonder 
if this might become possible in v9:

Selection Handles: Make selection border optional

The dashed border around selected controls certainly makes their 
selected state clear, but it also obscures the object's own border, 
sometimes making it difficult to visualize placement or changes to 
border treatments until I deselect it.

I kinda liked how it used to be, where the only indicators added to a 
selected object were the interactive handles, leaving the rest of the 
object visibly the same so we could evaluate changes made to it as we 
were making them.

But I recognize the change to alter the border treatment on selection 
was probably made for a reason, so if that reason is still important 
maybe that could become optional?
