  Toggle Next Region/Event or Move Marquee Start (or Extend Marquee Selection) to Next Transient ⇧→

I haven’t figured out the “toggle” part of the command, but the extend selection makes sense.

With a note (event) selected in a MIDI region ‘⇧→’ will extend the selection to include the next event. Easy to grab a note and the next few to make adjustments.

Using ‘⇧←’ (previous) extends the selection backwards in time.

With a marquee selection the commands behave as described, moving the start of the Marquee selection or extending it.

This is very handy fine-grained control of selections. I need to remember to make sure that the Marquee Ruler is visible.
