Why the requirement for a single selector? Did we not agree that the
selectors are 'OR'-ed rather than 'AND'-ed? (Ie. they are alternative
ways to select the same thing).  The spec does not say anything about
the interpretation of multiple states or multiple selectors. I think
it should.

And so there might be many ways to select a resource appearing in
another (say image in web page), but I don't see that as a stopper for
giving it a resolvable URI  - ie. a URL.

(remember: URI = URL union URN )
