After all, the first option is AFAIU the current effect of the rmail-summary-by-* command, they are applied on the entire folder and create a new summary.

That is true -- but what does it have to do with what user interface to use for choosing between union and intersection here? I don't see how it relates.

It seems more natural, at least to me, to ask the user how they want the command to be applied. For example, currently C-M-r asks a single question:

Recipients to summarize by:

and each C-M-r invocation starts again from all messages in the file. Instead C-M-r could ask two questions, the first one being a multiple choice similar to y-or-n-p:

New summary/Limit current summary/Extend current summary (n or l or e):

My point is that we already have q as a way to specify to disregard the previous filtering and start from "all the messages in the file."

Did you bind 'q' to some other command in your local customizations, perhaps? 'q' is by default bound to rmail-quit/rmail-summary-quit, which quits Rmail.
