My comment below:
> Per my reading of SE-0022, would SE-0064 institute the first exception to the #selector expression where the expression is not a reference to a method?
Indeed. But I don’t see the issue. It still generates a selector for an Objective-C method.

> let firstNameSetter = #selector(set: Person.firstName)

> let firstNameGetter = #selector(getter: Person.firstName)
> let firstNameSetter = #selector(setter: Person.firstName)

I don’t think get/set was specifically mentioned. My personal opinion is that it does not read well because it reads as an action.
