Your "responsibility" was "revised" at our recent
call. You were going to take over editorship of the scan document.
That means make any changes you want, or you can add the data model and say that
otherwise it's fine as it is. --Ray

believe my responsibility for Scan was to provide a data
is an operation that exposes the searchable terms of an index. For Scan,
the index is modeled as an ordered list of terms. The ordering is not
important to the operation, but is typically alphabetical. The client
provides a seed term (which may not actually exist in the index) in its
request, as well as a count of the number of desired terms to be returned and
an indication of where in that list it would expect to find the seed term,
should it exist. The server finds the search term closest to the seed
term in the ordered list of terms (the definition of close is left to the
server) and returns terms from that ordering using the position of the found
term to satisfy the position parameter in the request.
index contains the following terms:
client provides “dog” as the seed term, and requests three terms be returned
with the seed term in position 2. The server would return the list
charlie, delta, echo, if it decided that delta was closest to dog. It
could also have returned delta, echo, foxtrot if it had decided that echo was
closer to dog.
the same list of terms, the client requests 3 terms with the seed term
“charlie” in position 0. This will result in the terms delta, echo,
foxtrot being returned.
