No. This was in the Portable Constraints and meant for evaluators that
do not have a distinct Logical type. For those, if the sort order was
numeric<alpha<logical, having logical mixed with numeric and/or alpha
would yield unpredictable results. Hence the original portable
constraint that SearchRegion must either not include Logical at all, or
only Logical.

However, I think that your current text as posted in another mail
(SearchRegion must not include Logical, but evaluators may process
a SearchRegion that does) suits the needs.

IMHO this is a case where portable constraint really made sense, but
since we wanted to get rid of them...


Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements
of spreadsheets.  --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
