          This is dependent upon NEWTAG-303 and cannot be implemented until that is complete.

          The proposed format for linking CHOOSE:ABILITY to ABILITY: is not possible in the new core.
          ABILITY selects an ABILITY and ABILITY: applies an ABILITYSELECTION.

          To understand the distinction, consider a Feat like Martial Weapon Proficiency.

          The Ability is Martial Weapon Proficiency.
          The AbilitySelection is Martial Weapon Proficiency (Longsword)

          Applying the former to a character is not meaningful (and reintroduces bugs we had with Martial Weapon Proficiency in the past that we fixed by introducing CHOOSE:FEATSELECTION).
          The only thing that can be applied is the selection, and that requires CHOOSE to be able to produce a selection (see NEWTAG-303)

          James, I think we want ABILITYLIST as a valid list of Abilities that we can Apply to the character. ABILITYSELECTION I was under the impression was for Grabbing a Choice made by a particular Ability. Akin to a Feat like Weapon Focus or Weapon Specialization.

          Example:

          CHOOOSE:WEAPONPROFICIENCY|ABILITYSELECTION=Internal|Fighter Weapon Specialization ~ Mongo

          Would return a list of Profs, from the Fighter Weapon Specialization ~ Mongo ability, which we could plug into BONUS:WEAPONPROF=%LIST|TOHIT|3

          Whereas, CHOOSE:ABILITYLIST|CATEGORY|TYPEs|OrNames we can grant via ABILITY:CATEGORY|NATURE|%LIST
