If we are going to rework that, mature S2_5 is not a place for it.

This seems not to be as simple thing as I first thought -> dropping S2_4 target as change is too risky for that branch. The unit selection dialog actually crashes if opened without selected units. While the crash is easy to fix, the unit selection dialog in general builds things up relative to the currently selected unit (or head unit, if multiple selected) -> (Same) "Tile" is the tile unit stands on, "Continent" likewise, "Land" / "Sea" only apper depending on where the current unit is.

As subject. It used to make sense to grey out the whole Select menu, but now "Unit selection dialog" could usefully be chosen.

Not sure whether the right answer is to ungrey "Select", or move "Unit selection dialog" to another menu.
