To avoid confusion, i think we need to get, sometimes confusing terms,
straight first: We have a facetselect, which can be seen as a
(filtered) mirror, and we have a facetsearch, something that results
in facetted navigation through the content.

Now, I am confused about ' a facet select over results of a (full
text) search query.', unless you mean, you want in a faceted search,
also to embed a free text search, to limit the number of results in
the facetted navigation. This is a good question. We will provide this
feature on short notice, but currently, this is not yet possible. For
now, you would best go by adding an extra facet which functions to
limit results. Another thing that will be done in short notice, is
that a facetsearch after a facetselect, will include the filter of the
facetselect (in other words, a facetsearch in a live environment,
should only return 'live' documents)
