Right. The question is: is that a "problem"?
We've had filtering mechanisms from Advanced Search to fancier ones from
time immemorial and yet they've had little traction historically. Do people
really want a secondary layer on top of flat search results from which they
pick? Has that been established as a good enough baseline?
