there is also the "selection" consisting of currently selected clips.
And besides, there is the currently selected marker (formerly edit cursor)
And last but not least (really very important), there is the current
loop selection and the current punch range selection. :-)

Yes, the terminology can be confusing. Probably we'd need a book called
"gentle introduction to Ardour", which would be recommended reading for
each new user....

But PLEASE, don't take this as a reason to think the Ardour UI would need
"steamlining". Its exactly this multitude of selections, together with the
markers, keybindings, mouse wheel and MIDI binding which make working with
Ardour so sweet if you're about to do more involved sound work.
