case your objection is presumably that it is not helpful.

I think there is possibly a bit of a gap in terms of understanding how patterns
work as operands (because there aren't many cases where this happens).

We're only concerned with the case where @value is absent.

If @value is absent and the instruction selects a node in the streamed document
(that is, if the posture of @select is anything other than grounded), then the
fact that @select has usage=navigation will make the instruction free-ranging
regardless of the other operands.

If @value is absent and @select is grounded, then the only way the two patterns
can make the instruction non-streamable is if they use a "group" variable to
refer to streamed nodes.

Perhaps it would be better to spell more of this out here, and rely less on the
