Maybe I do not recognise the differences yet, but the examples you provided
for how "pipe-aware selection" would work, are all possible without such a
selector, please see the 'editor.xmap' in <slash-edit/>.

Furthermore, is there REALLY a difference between these two pipelines:

                   - pipeline1 -
                  /              \
 request -> A -> X - pipeline2 - X -> C -> response
                  \              /
                   - pipelineN -

 request -> A -> P1 -> P2 -> P3 -> C -> response

(where Pn are a group of Transformations/Actions etc.)

Apart from how you would arrange them differently in the Sitemap, what is
the real need to have parallel processes?
