I've noted from experience that selectors without a set on pre-defined values are usually useless outside the tool that defines them.

If the value to carry in a "standard" attribute is not standardized, there is little point to have such attribute.

To have minimal interoperability it seems a selector needs to have at least a minimum set of defined values. Then each system can map those to their own corresponding labels.

Cheers,
