We clarify the notion of well-chosen weak solutions of the instationary Navier-Stokes system recently introduced by the authors and P.-Y. Hsu in the article {\em Initial values for the Navier-Stokes equations in spaces with weights in time, Funkcialaj Ekvacioj} (2016). Well-chosen weak solutions have initial values in $L^{2}_{\sigma}(\Omega)$ contained also in a quasi-optimal scaling-invariant space of Besov type such that nevertheless Serrin's Uniqueness Theorem cannot be applied. However, we find universal conditions such that a weak solution given by a concrete approximation method coincides with the strong solution in a weighted function class of Serrin type.
