I don't understand, for either case.

I thought the primary reason people want a sort parameter is to specify a
priori the order of records in the result set.  Why wouldn't that apply in the
case where a query is submitted, but no records are desired in that response?

Secondarily, I thought we decided that we could supply a sort parameter and a
result set id (no query) to mean sort existing result set. Why wouldn't that
alone be a meaningful request (without asking for records)?
