If you are going to use a Schwartzian Transform please give credit where due.

    Eh? The ST's an idiom, not some sort of proprietary construct. It's not as if there's some great dispute over whose leap of hackerly brilliance it was -- the credit is right in the name! When someone sees map/sort/map they'll immediately think "Oh, a Schwartzian Transform". Immediate credit to Merlyn.

    That said, pointing out that a ST was used is probably a Good Thing -- that way, a novice (or maintenance programmer :-) confronted with the code has some recourse beyond "what the hell's up with all these maps?" The ST is pointed out, so the unfamiliar reader can go off and read up on STs... and learn something in the process.
