Your assumption here is that there is only one hit that might be interesting
for the user. For many editors, lists of articles that are starting points for
their editing behavior make perfect sense. Sure, editors are a very small
number of users compared to readers. That is why sorting should be a secondary
action, after the first results have been shown.
