From my perspective the behavior should be identical as to what is defined 
for single scope i.e. I believe all the other aspects of a search request 
(select, where, orderby, etc) should behave the way they have been defined 
for single scope.

However I can see scenarios wherein it would definitely be useful if the 
user can specify the ability to group results by scope.

If section 5.4 is supposed to allow multiple scopes, it will need to define
precisely how this affects the search results. For instance, a reader may
think that it is acceptable to just process individual requests against each
of the scopes, and then to concatenate the response elements for a common
multistatus result. I guess this is not the desired behaviour, right?
