It will come to interesting situation. There is no special descriptive regulations for special seeding, and even though Special Rankings regulations suggest that WTA Tour has a right to seed a Gold Exempt player with Special Rankings, they don't specify how. Also I seem to remember an interview with a WTA official who said that they would do Special Seedings in exceptional circumstances, but special seeding of more than one player at a time is out of question ( because it basically breaks the concept of "exceptional" ). And now we have a total of three players who could probably ask for that - Williams sisters and Seles.
I wonder which one would they pick? Serena though seems to be eliminating that possibility for herself by playing Hopman Cup, that starts one day before her 6 month period ends. Venus or Seles? By regulations, it should be Seles, because they will be able to seed Venus anyway, and Seles won't be seeded without Special seedings..
