What do you mean by "premium feature"? I think it is just a nice-to-have
addition that serves certain otherwise awkward use-cases, as explained
in bug #6848.

Oh, and what does "reaches cheap seats" mean? That 3.0 reaches Rec status?

How does adding a select-attribute to the xsl:copy instruction change
the content model, and if so, the content model of what, the XDM of the
input tree? Yes, the XDM has changed, for instance to allow function
items, but adding the select-attribute did not change it, I believe.
