To reply to two points at once; you asked for clarification of in what way 
the collapsed option is not fully-functional. It is not fully functional 
in that it does not support position-based indexing as the LC design does. 
If that is not a desirable property, then I believe that the best approach 
is to eliminate this requirement from the results format (and then going 
with option 'c' is less objectionable).
