Thanks, that documentation, and ther other information you provided, 
will be very useful for speccing this feature in the future.  It is 
likely that this will be included in Selectors API 2, but, as I said, it 
is too late for it to be included in the current spec.

Since we are nearing interoperability for the current spec in the 4 
major browser engines with the current APIs, getting that to CR and 
beginning work on Selectors API v2, rather than holding up this spec to 
fit in this new feature, will actually be the easiest way with moving
