Seems to me the simplest approach would be to do this either as part of
the search attribute or in additionalSearchInfo.

Problem here of course is that if you generate large result sets in the
search the target might not want to do the sort anyway because of the
additional processing overhead - you then need to bring the sort
diagnostics on the search response as well.
