Goal

For a Workbench rule that boosts several records to the top of the results list, we expect the remaining non-boosted records to be in the default order from Endeca. This order works as expected for keyword searches because we retain the relevancy ranking, but when we navigate, the default ordering is lost.

E.g. 

If there are 4 records 1,2,3,4 and we boost record 3, we expect the records to be ordered as 3,1,2,4.  Instead, the records after 3 are in an order that looks random.  How do we maintain a default sort order for the remaining records?
