How can we improve Azure Search?

Provide method for escaping characters in the search string like UrlEscape

Special characters must be escaped to be used as part of the search text. You can escape them by prefixing them with backslash (\). Special characters that need to be escaped include the following:
+ - && || ! ( ) { } [ ] ^ " ~ * ? : \ /
Is there a built in method, basically the equivalent of UrlEscape, which can do this, or is every developer actually expected to do their own implementation?
