No mention of selenium that I recall, but the panel (academics for the most part, with I think one person from industry) didn't provide much of an overview to start with. They just assumed that the audience was up to speed already with the issues that manufacturers were facing regarding emissions. It was also focused on the future of glass melting on Murano, which encompassed current EU regulations, but didn't really provide any kind of a global perspective on these issues.

It's hard for me to imagine a world without red, orange and yellow. As Pete points out, there are all sorts of issues with the conceivable alternatives (nanoparticles of silver) which, while theoretically possible, put them outside of the general run of factory production. I suspect that a back door will be found through parts of the world that aren't as environmentally scrupulous if the EU does pursue this with any kind of zeal.
