Some points for debate

    Actually, I'm not sure I understand the difference between having a start
    parameter that can indicate any body part, and always having "start" be the
    first body part (as in header-set). 

Only the most obvious distinction comes to mind.  Header-set has an
extremely small look-ahead requirement.  Since the start parameter can
be on *any* of the body parts and the length of each part is arbitrary,
look-ahead can be painful.
