I read twice through your text and I'm still trying to wrap my
head around the gist of it.

Perhaps that's because I don't use the mouse much (when doing
text, at least). Perhaps it's something else.

My feeling (it mitght be totally wrong: I'm trying to expound
it just in an attempt to debug what's going on) is that you
are connecting directly two layers which are too far apart: at
the abstract/model/text end selection and its handling, at the
concrete/physical/UI end the mouse clicks.

In another debugging attempt: could you try to explain what you
are up to assuming the user has no mouse?

Now the above sounds as if I was trying to imply that you are
somehow "wrong". That I am not! I'm just at a loss trying to
understand what you are trying and even feel it's difficult for
me adequately expressing my difficulties.
