I guess I am using subsetting as in “returning part of” which typically at the granule level you are "returning part of a data set”. I do agree that some sub-setters serialize the results as files but that not all do. I also note that some granule level opensearches do return the results as a single file even if there are several granules involved.
I guess I don’t understand hyrax and threads well enough to distinguish the different cases we are seeing in the data - I was just going off the list of what we found (and how that was labeled).
It is conceivable to me that the terms I used need to be refined based on larger community perceptions (i.e., not just your and my perceptions).
I will note that I plan on using whatever set of terms the community agrees on in an ontology of web service profiles in the Earth Sciences, so I would prefer discussion on these terms sooner rather than later.

Seems like they are either both Subsetting Service (if I understand Subsetting correctly) or both Data Service (if I misunderstand Subsetting).
