Yes, sorry, or course I meant the SRW requirements. (I've got these two
projects so closely associated in my mind, that I get them mixed up

Specifically, I meant the information requirements.  What information about an
SRW server does a client need, that's not provided by a ZeeRex record? (By an
"srw server", we mean, from the ZeeRex perspective, the "single unnamed
database" at the server, as described at

To be clear, I'm only suggesting that the explain information for srw be a
ZeeRex subset.  I'm not suggesting that we use the same method to retrieve it.
