I'm also asking can the CSG be asked "give me the first one, I'll come
back for the rest later"? In my scenario above, if you don't have
something like this, then the CSG could waste a lot of time generating a
list of (potentially) thousands of resources which match my requirements
when I'm going to throw away all but the first one. This could be a
problem weather I'm the JM or the EPS.
