Me too :) even though I think that term would require a more generic
interface than just allowing 3 strata, why not 2, 4 or n?
You could just supply n ranges and arrange the first stratum into the first
range, the second stratum into the second range, etc.

How about using the singular stratum to take away (reduce) that confusion

sort_stratum(range, segment); // Sean's function
stratify(ranges) ; // Marshall's function
