I think so -- it's just a means you can use (along with openField and
exitField) to determine what to with fields' contents, for example when you
change focus across multiple fields.  I don't believe selectionChanged
handles cases where the cursor simply changes position in different fields
-- it seems you actually have to select something to trigger
selectionChanged, whereas open/close/exitField handle basic changes of
object focus.  Not sure if this is what you're asking.
