I do something similar with a "Select Nothing" macro:

     moveRightAndModifySelection:     (shift-right-arrow))
     moveLeft:                        (left-arrow)

This simply deselects the region, leaving the cursor at the beginning of 
that region.  I have this bound to the ESC key, since that's what I'm used 
to from other editors.  I also make heavy use of column (block) 
selections, and it just feels awkward to make a stream selection, change 
it to a column selection, then modify the selected area.  So I have a 
"Start Block Selection" macro bound to ^B which does the first two steps 
at once.

     moveRightAndModifySelection:     (shift-right-arrow))
     toggleColumnSelection:           (option)
