It kind of already does.  The space bar is used as the "Boomerang" tool.  By default, it moves you to the Pan (hand) tool, but by hitting the X key while holding down the space bar it will give you temporary access to the Selection tool.  Pretty much any of the 2D tools (in the Basic tool palette) can be used. I have not tried many others, but I think they will work also. You can either use the keyboard shortcut or go an click in palette to activate the second tool. When you release the space bar it will return to the original tool.

Okay. Thanks for pointing that out.

I think it would be handy to have the biggest key, the space bar,  be set up as the selection tool, being  the most used tool (without holding it down) though...

Once you get used to it, I would bet that you will use the boomerang function to pan the drawing to get to what you need way more often than you need to switch back to the selection tool.
