it seems that you want to try out alternative ways of user interaction. We try to use the default keyboard interactions seen in programs like apple mail.
Because I like the objects are created in Omni Graffle I experimented with this in my own module. (http://lively-kernel.org/repository/webwerkstatt/kernel/lively/morphic/Graffle.js)
If you wan't to prototype alternative ways of using the keyboard you can do it in a similar way.
I agree that shift + click should add to the selection. http://lively-kernel.org/trac/ticket/145
