Those were never conjoined that much. Slots and multiple templates are part
of the same proposal, but they are largely independent pieces. As for slots
being a prerequisite for imperative APIs, I only remember it being
mentioned in the sense that any flavor of declarative API should be
implementable by the imperative API.

Is the situation where no other vendors are willing to implement the
current select not a strong reason?

That's a good request. I'll work on the comparison, including Domenic's
request to outline the constant-timeliness.
