I'm not talking about it.  I'm talking about what it's replacing.

I can assume that it is wonderful.  And I understand something
about the usefulness of users seeing a set of search hits
together and being able to filter and choose among them.
I don't, for even a moment, doubt its advantages.

None of that speaks to why it should replace, instead of be an
addition to, the longstanding `A' and `Q' behavior, which do
not let users see a set of search hits.
