Proposed dynamic error: a select that doesn't select nodes

I propose that a select expression on a p:input (or it's synonyms)
which does not select a set of nodes is a dynamic error.

In other words, you can't do this:

  <p:input select="3+5"/>

It follows, I think, that any use of a select expression on an input
bound to p:empty is always going to raise this error. But I'm not
inclined to add that as a static error.

                                        Be seeing you,
