Aha! So we _are_ keeping the ability to refer to a previous result
set (or more than one) in a new search.
So you can do the search "result-set foo" with a new sort-spec.
My question: how is that different from submitting a request with that
sort-spec, with no search-specification, and with "foo" specified as
the previous result set? Surely they are are equivalent?
In which case we should junk the latter: there should be one and only
one way to say each thing. N'est-ce pas?
