Obviously, if entries are removed when read they won't be available
for other programs to access.

What MI instruction or API provides a "destructive read" capability for a User Index object? There is the by-default destructive-read of messages read from a Data Queue, and there is an alternate means to effect a non-destructive-read of messages\entries on a queue. Or was perhaps a private interface that combines the effects of FNDINXEN and RMVINXEN [or the equivalent APIs: Retrieve User Index Entries (QUSRTVUI) API and Remove User Index Entries (QUSRMVUI) API] being described, rather than a specific method provided by the OS to access the Independent Index?
