How can we improve Azure Search?

Extend Tag Boosting by "searching" instead of "filtering"

Azure Search with Tag Boosting will give a boost to documents that have "exact" tags in common with the input query.

If a tag in index is "salt lake city" and one from query is "salt lake", the document doesn't get a boost. Even worse, since I believe Tag matching is using "filter" routine, it is case-sensitive.

Yes, we can do multi-column search, but one column search with tag boosting is a way more fast and returns better relevance results focusing on the main column.

So it would be great if Azure Search extends the current Tag Boosting to use "search" instead of "filter".
