Selecting multiple objects works as a temporary group in LibreOffice and for
that the green handles of the bounding box is the correct visualization. MS
Office works different. If you drag a handle of one selected object, the
transformation is done the same way for all selected objects. Such behavior is
not available in LibreOffice. The other way round, temporarily grouping is not
available in MS Office (at least I don't know it). So MS Office is not suitable
for a comparison.

Inkscape behaves the same as LibreOffice, but shows dotted lines or a little
cross mark or nothing on selected objects, dependent on its application
settings. CorelDraw behaves the same as LibreOffice too, but has a little
square as indicator at the 'start' of the object.

Of cause point mode is a special mode. But if the decision will be to introduce
such indicator, that does not mean, that it will be implemented in the
foreseeable future. For my personal needs point mode is enough, but I notice
that such indicator will help users. Still to be clarified: Which indicator?
Make it configurable? 

The component "Draw" is too narrow, you need such feature in Writer, Impress
and Calc too.
