I am not as interested in a fragment syntax. I have often explained 
the purpose of the selectors as a mechanism to escape the need to 
define a fragment syntax, a projection to a single string, for 
arbitrarily complex selections.

Whether some subset of possible selectors should have a fragment 
syntax, for what media types, how that would come to pass, whether 
vendors would implement it.... all very difficult to say.

I agree that the first two steps are editorial, though. Even more, 
though, I am in favor from a readability / documentation standpoint. 
It is great not to be distracted by the selectors when discussing the 
rest of the model core and vice versa.
