Yeah, if the central trait is indexed sequential access, then
having "Indexed" in the title seems to be a pretty good choice as
far as making the title more precise while still keeping it short
and clear without needing to rely on a specific technology term
(ISAM) that most readers aren't going to know about and probably
don't need to actually know anything about in order to use the API.
