Been a while since I was on the Bus, but...

I always understood a part of the reason for using selected in these instances was due to the fact you were in direct law for landing hence had no autotrim. As GS mini oscillates the speed around the workload is going to increase for the PF as he has to retrim for each change in speed, which isn't something which is regularly practiced on the Bus... Nor is convenient if you are in manual thrust too..
