Hi Rustom,

have you seen this part of the reply?  Matt is correct that what you  
are trying (demoting a region of headlines) works with M-right, but  
not with M-S-right.  The reason for this is that a region might  
contain incomplete trees, which would led to a contradiction in which  
headlines should be changed.
