How about imposing some limits on what the selector can do. For example,
not allowing a universal selector to be on the left part of the "parent"
selector. In my opinion this can turn out to be a pretty useful
selector, I see it is being asked about often on IRC channels. If we
would to impose some limits on the selector (the limits that would not
require a lot of CPU time to compute the selector) it could be of real
use even in limited edition so to speak.
