Up to the server to support or not as it chooses. Eg a server can
interpret a request to sort by 'Title' in any way it choses, but you would
expect that if there is a title field or index then it would sort by that.
For example, if the server indexes titles without leading articles, then
a 'title' sort if this is done by index will sort without the stopwords,
but if the server does it by the text in the field it will probably sort
with the stopwords included.
This is fine by me, just a side effect, but is a side effect that we
should be aware of.
