That is correct.  It allows the handler for that event to squirrel away
the old data for the purposes of e.g. an Undo system.

I have in mind to change this a bit, however.  In the next release of 
FOX, we'll likely send TWO messages.  One on behalf of the undo system,
before the data changes, and one after.

The current workaround would be to grab the new value after the message
returns; perhaps by setting a chore to generate a second message after
the SEL_REPLACED returns.

Hope this explains,
