Still, if we were to do something to s.0, like export new default
settings, then how do we distinguish between exporting s.0 and
exporting the compound space as a whole? (Another example: you want
the slice's d.masterdim rank or the space's d.masterdim rank)

OK, s.0 is special. It might be it's not a problem if it has special and
normal slice role at the same time. I guess we'll see as we go on.
