The tooltip for Emulate 3 Button Mouse explicitly says "doesn't work with Left Mouse Select option", so while Blender allows you to select it while its grayed, it still wont work.

It's indeed a known issue it seems, these two options don't work well together, both view navigation and loop select are bound to the same input then.

We'll try to take this into account for the keymap redesign, but for now not considered a bug.

Ok in 2.7, binding a key to mesh.loop_select behaves like L and allows multiselect. This is all I need to consider this resolved. The issue I had in previous versions was that a bound key would "swap" edge loops rather than "toggle" and was crippling.

I have currently bound this to [ and it is awesome.
