Then, how do you search through a set of files using `xref'? Is that even 

You do that by using the XREF buffer and the special commands
available there.

You can also use next-error and previous-error. If the question is about navigating through search results, of course.

I think the only viable solution is to provide a replacement for
tags-search that uses the xref UI to browse the results.

By now, we have both project-find-regexp and dired-do-find-regexp, which provide different takes on the issue of "search through a set of files".

If you want to have an xref-find-regexp as well, we should first understand clearly how it would differ from those two commands. And its specification cannot refer to tags files directly.
