I don't like the idea of putting a selection related aspect into the data
categories. And no matter if we call this "data category" or not: 'selector
type' makes possibly things complex. What should happen, if the type is
"in-situ", but there is dislocated ITS information in the document? I think the
initial idea of Francois's comment was to make things easier, not more complex.
I think this question is more one of conformance to ITS: does an implementation
support ITS information in a schema, and / or in situ and / or dislocated? If we
want to allow these variations, we could specify each of the three as an
optional implemenation feature, which would be the same effect as with the
attribute values 'in-situ, dislocated, both, unknown'.
