The structure of that part of Gdk follows very closely the X11 way of doing things, and Cocoa Foundation's way of handling selections and clipboards (which they call pasteboards) doesn't line up very well with it. It seems to me that it might work better to just make a gtkselection-quartz.c and implement everything directly, ignoring Gdk entirely, much as Richard did with gtkclipboard-quartz.c and gtkdnd-quartz.c.

seems to me that its all about time. ideally, the design of GDK would be modified to be more generic/adaptable, and all backends would continue to use it as an interface. but it seems to me unlikely that this is going to happen in any reasonably timely  way. so if you want this to work (i confess that its not too important for ardour's functionality), i think your proposal is likely right way forward.
