I don't like the idea of proliferation of Link header rel types for combinations of other ones.

As this is a more advanced use of dialogs, it could be limited to the RDF version, so the creation-and-selection one would be identified solely as selectionDialog in the Link headers, and in the the RDF could say <URI of creation-selection dialog> oslc:includesFunctionalityOf <URI of selection-only dialog>.(This would also allow exposing information of other includes-functionality-of relationships, such as a wizard that allows creation of an AutomationRequest plus location of its AutomationResult - see OSLC Automation).
However if you didn't have a selection-only dialog, instead only having the combined one, that wouldn't work so well.

And it is starting to feel over-complicated...

(2) would be my next preference.

If we don't mind the verbosity, we could have an example of both. That should make it very clear.
