Currently, when making complex direct selections, the Direct Selection Tool only allows addition or inversion of current selection, either by drawing a selection box or by clicking individual vertices (while holding Shift). This is kind of silly. It would be way more straightforward for the tool to allow either addtion, subtraction or inversion of selected vertices (you know, using Shift, Alt of Shift+Alt, respectively).
Illustrator allows to save, load and managed partial and full selection with Select > Save / Edit Selection commands.
UI is archaic, but it does the thing you want.

As for having a selection operation as an undoable operation — there is a separate feature request for this you can vote for: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/34934953Anonymous shared this idea ·
