How can we improve Azure Search?

Search multiple indexes at once

The underlying elasticsearch technology supports making a single search query that searches and ranks results over multiple disparate indexes at once[1], but this functionality is not surfaced through the Azure Search APIs.

Adding this would allow a single search to span over indexes with different schemas combined in a single correctly ordered result set.
