My nautilus does not select on click, it activates :)

The arguments you make I agree on, and shall add that single-clicking
on any of the things in my panel currently activates them (where
approperiate). So at least in Gnome context it's already a moot point
as everybody is doing it.

P.S. Double-clicking is a bad choice for primary action in any form,
as there is nothing to hint that behaviour (unless you count previous
experience the user may or may not have as one).
