search on author or a scan on author

i) the request is sent to different databases - one modelling an index
(although as Ralph and I have pointed out how do you manage the
ii) the requests are different operations (exact mechanism of indicating
operations to be determined)

iv) a scan versus search is indicated in the query somehow

scan.index=dc.creator AND scan.term >= <term>

the use of the scan context set is the trigger/flag the server uses to
determine whether to run the query on the database or on the index.
