We *don't* have client-defined range facets, therefore the developer
cannot figure out how to create such a query anyway. Your argument does
not hold true for server-defined facets. To put it another way: there
will be no sending of strings that have not been sent first by the
*server*, and therefore there will be no "url hacking" or "query

Onderwerp: [search-ws-comment] "Last Week" is a bad idea for
I've been giving more thought to our facets conversation and
have decided that I don't like "Last Week" as a term to be sent back to
the server. I'm not saying it is illegal or that the standard won't
support it. I'm just saying I think it is a bad idea.
The reason is that it depends on server magic. The client, or
more importantly the developer, won't learn anything about how to
construct other range queries if we hide how it is done behind magic
strings. If, instead, we send "20101017 20101023" as the <actualTerm>,
then the developer might be able to figure out how to create their own
query for "Two Weeks Ago".
Of course, an <actualTerm> of "20101017 20101023" would want a
<displayTerm> of "Last Week".
