An implementation nuance, and no one asked for it :). The extract
filter just support extracting a single frustum. We, in theory can
make it support multiple additive frustums, but some additive, some
subtractive will make it a trickier implementation. Of course, doable,
not since no one asked for it, it never got around to getting

Ah! That's cool and not easily supportable the way things are
currently. But Berk and I were chatting and we have an approach to
support combining multiple selections add/remove/etc. nicely. Now just
convince Alan to make it a priority and I'd love to have it sorted out
