When you select an item in the list view it should highlight just the name, not even the column, I am talking about the text that conforms the file name. Every other place outside that boundary is anything but the file.

Personally I find it handy to be able to click anywhere on the line to
select a file.

Those two things are not mutually exclusive. Dragging a currently-unselected icon or filename can select it and start moving it, while dragging elsewhere in its row can select it and start selecting contiguous items.

If it is possible what you suggest, then that would make it easier to
"rubberband"-select items in the list view, like you can in the icon view. Dragging the mouse over columns other than icon/filename would not affect the item under the mouse cursor directly, but rather affect the selection.

"Rubberbanding" in the list view would be handy, how about activating
"rubberbanding" if the shift key is held down (presuming that key is not in use) ?

As you can see by trying it, Shift is already used for contiguous selection, Ctrl is used for non-contiguous selection, and Alt is (unfortunately) used to move the window. But a modifier key wouldn't be necessary if the behavior described above was implemented.
