No it was actually quite simple:

(defun randomise-region ()
  "Like `ap/replace-words-randomly', but only replace inside region if it is active.
If the region is not active, replace from point to the end of the
buffer.  The region is never considered active outside
`transient-mark-mode'. "
  (if (or (and (boundp 'zmacs-region-active-p) zmacs-region-active-p)
	  (and (boundp 'transient-mark-mode) transient-mark-mode mark-active))
          (narrow-to-region (point) (mark))
          (goto-char (point-min))
