Matthew has proposed restricting this such that it explicitly MUST NOT have
any special terms - no "OR" or "-" etc - and add a second that does have
these (but can include instructions in the MAM form).

We then need to decide if/how to handle locales, which are important for
full text searching.

The first change is simple enough, I can pen something the moment we have a
number. The second part we might get done at the Summit, and if not, I'm
hoping we can reach a consensus quickly.

All we need to do if agree on the semantics on the search fields, there's
no other syntax, so unless that locale discussion drags on, we could be
done within a month or two.
