sure you can:

function(keys, values) {
  var sorted = sort(values);
  return [values[0], values[1], values[2], values[3], values[4]];

the above really really simplistic reduce demonstrates that you can return
sorted subsets of a value for a given key.

With a little key inspection you can deterministically return subsets for
only certain key types.
