From the answers Jack & Paul gave at the SE show presentation, Select on the Iyonix will initially consist of softloaded components, untilising the exsiting HAL and hardware dependant drivers of RO5 (so all existing Iyonix hardware will containue to work).

Wotk on merging the Select and RO5 source trees will eventually result in a single ROM image incorporating both the RO5 HAL and the Select enhancements. This will still be softloaded on the Iyonix, and a vanilia RO5 image will remain in flash as a fall back. Although eventually when mature it there could be an Iyonix Adjust which would be committed to flash.
