 ANS SEARCH wordset: FORTH and SET-ORDER

>1. What should FORTH do if there are no wordlists in the search order?

There is a "minimum search order" (16.4.1.1) which is
"implementation-defined" in the basic portion of the wordset, and extended
by ONLY (16.6.2.1965) to include FORTH-WORDLIST and SET-ORDER if the EXT
wordset is included.  In either case, FORTH-WORDLIST becomes the first
wordlist.

>2. What should SET-ORDER do if it is given a size of search-order < -1?

The fact that the standard doesn't prescribe what happens means it's up to
you whether you want to attach some additional meanings to negative flags
(unlikely but legal), issue an error message, ignore, etc.  A "standard
program" may not depend upon any such extensions, however.
