Being able to call up such a dialog box, to set several attributes
at once for the current context (i.e., as opposed to setting a
static and persistent user option), is a plus.  Just as it is
for setting the default attribute preferences (i.e., one or more
user options).

But such a dialog box should not be the only way to change
individual attribute values.  That can be done quickly using
toggle commands and/or toggle menu items.

Being able to change multiple search attributes at once, as in
a dialog box is useful.  So is being able to quickly change any
of them individually.

When you say "non-orthogonal", presumably you are suggesting that
changing one attribute automatically either changes some others
or restricts some others.  Which such search attributes did you
have in mind?
