Probably because owning a selection is a lot more complicated than 
requesting a selection owned by another client, and no one has seen a 
need for the former. A while ago I implemented support for the manager 
selection in a very ad hoc manner. It did not seem worth the trouble to 
design a general lisp interface for selection ownership, so I didn't.

Probably because Sawfish itself has few user interface elements to paste 
the selection into and there is no universal way to ask a client to 
paste a selection.
