I've written some commentary on the Selectors API draft on WebGraphics.

1. I'm aware how selectors work in browsers and that that's different from how they'd work here, but there was no pushback from implementors given that this is something authors want to use. Note also that you don't get live collections.

2. I'm not convinced it should be a native data type in ECMAScript. It operates on the DOM which is not native to ECMAScript either. Having an object which implements some selector interface on which you can perform node tests seems like an interesting idea, but is currently outside the scope of this specification. If there is enough interest though it seems certainly we should look into.

3. Letting StaticNodeList inherit from Array and NodeList not is not an option. They have to be identical. Hopefully DOM Level 3 Core gets errata to say that only some object implementing the NodeList interface is live and not all objects implementing NodeList (well, it currently says something even vaguer if I remember correctly) so we can drop StaticNodeList and just define that the object is static.
