I think the problem we have to solve is: Problem: "Given that we have a list of nodes, what's the best way to select nodes from the list? We can give any *hint* to the nodes beforehand if we wish."
Is this a correct problem statement? I think we don't have to limit our answers to this problem by the current select and the content-slot. Any better ideas can be acceptable, I think. The hint we can use is: - tag name - id attribute - class attribute - any other attributes. (Okay to have a dedicated attribute, such as 'content-slot') - The position of the node in the list - Other status, such as ":focused" (in CSS's terminology) - Anything else? I think the current <content select> has been there in the spec for a long time. No one hasn't spent much time on thinking a replacement of it until recently. I hope that this discussion might be a good opportunity to get an agreement between us.
