Wait, but in the case you suspect is common, where you return results as soon as the first resource is returned, and subsequent results are added to the _end_ of the list I'm thinking that in most of these cases, the subsequent results will be several pages in, and the user will never

Since we generally return results asynchronously to client systems from our MSSE (fed/meta/broadcast/aggregated/parallel/Multi-Server/Search Engine) I would just point out that we use other protocols than SRU when doing so. When we do use SRU on the client side, then we send back the results in

Aha, but we get interleaved results from the different Sources. So the results are not all A, all B, all... Even if the results come as complete sets of 10, we internally collect them asynchronously as they are processed. The number of buffers and processing stages is quite large, so the

Agreed it is a problem. What MSSEs do (when operating this way) is make this issue a response time dependent one. Users themselves make it a Source dependent one (they only look at results from the sites they decide to search). Ranking algorithms make it an algorithm dependent one (their
