"Totally, utterly and absolutely wrong!"

Ah, I'm glad I'm not just wrong.

What I've written above is my interpretation of what I've gathered from several sources over the years, but apparently my ignorance and lack of basic coding experience prevent me from getting a clear picture. Like most users, I certainly know RO can easily be extended or have components replaced with new, enhanced ones. It's how we often update stuff or even how the Select scheme is made possible, I believe (correct me if I'm wrong).

Still, surely the Select scheme has meant a lot of elements of RO4 have seen major change, restructuring or replacement, which could have made implementing some of the new features easier? I used to think that many of these internal improvements directly allowed for the more visible Select features. I guess ROL could take the various parts of source code which could be made compatible with RO5 and complete them for use with it, but I guess they came to the conclusion it would demand too much time spent reworking of, or adding to, their existing sources. I'm not endorsing or condemning any action, just speculating. I wonder, seeing there probably are a lot of people wanting Select features on Iyonix, if the ROOL route would prevail over the RO6 route?
