But as I figure it, having mv_coordinate=1 and a non-matching
number of  search specs and search fields is not a legitimate
combination anyway, so this change would not break any valid search.

I suppose it'd break only for people who had an incorrect search
in the first place.

I had mv_force_coordinate in mind myself too (which would also have a
'fc' shorthand available) but do we need it?

I mean, this isn't a "glitch" in the code that turned out to have
unexpected side-benefits and that people started relying. This is just
some unuseful code path that was never mentioned or advertised by
