Marshall Schor commented on UIMA-5115:

I was thinking of selectCovered.  The question I was posing arises in the case 
where the type of the bounding FS is a subtype of the index type being 
iterated, just opposite to your example.

For instance:  selectCovered(Sentence.type, aVeryWideToken), where someone has 
(for reasons unknown) constructed a "Token" covering multiple sentences.  Here 
the question is, do you return items of Sentence and its subtypes, or Token and 
its subtypes?

I think the answer is you return Sentence and subtypes; that is, there's no 
additional type filtering based on the type of the bounding FS (again, because 
it's not needed - if only tokens are wanted, that's more directly expressible 
using Token.class as the first argument).
