I am not sure I understand. If the search is live, how can it ever be "done" ?
People may think that once this signal is received, they won't receive any
more of the Hits signals.

I like alternative 4.1 better. In the user language, a statement without
a field selection means all fields, so it seems natural to have the same
in the query language.
