I would add "which", so it says "... which selects ..."

Will fix.

Good question. Probably because the identifiers are 1.0 and the data 
type is 2.0, and they did not want to change the meaning of the 
identifier in 2.0. I guess we could either

- Rename the attribute identifier 2.0, or

- Overload/change the meaning of the attribute identifier to use the new 

I guess I prefer the former choice.

Yes. :-)
