Yet, it will lead to large spacing between src blocks in the following

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  "This is test"
<point>  "This is test2"
  "This is test3"


Also, your new version of the patch will completely misbehave because of
setting mark. Please, use `region-beginning' and `region-end' instead.
Setting and checking mark is not to be done in Elisp - it only make
sense when transient-mark-mode is enabled.

That would make sense. Although, we do not have to limit the possible
options to just what you listed. Arbitrary affiliated keywords might
also be excluded. For example, #+ATTR_HTML keyword is stored in src
block object as :attr_html.

Setting mark causes issue in my above example.

> +          (unless (and (>= (point) body-beg) (<= (mark) body-end))
> +            (user-error "Select within the source block body to split it"))

Here, it is better to use `region-beginning', `point', and `region-end'.
`region-beginning', unlike mark and point, is guaranteed to be _before_
`region-end'. Mark may be before point, in contrast.

You can write something like

 (if (org-region-active-p)
   (<= body-beg (region-beginning) (region-end) body-end)
  (>= body-beg (point)))
 (user-error ...))
