Not a good idea, in my opinion. I'd leave it to an implementation. If
a server does respect such terms, OK, the user has more granular
control over the output. If it does not - well, OK.
Having different methods to do this stuff will lead to
overcomplication on the client side which will have do decide support,
understand user's intent, etc.

Google, Yandex, Bing, DDG, etc do not have separate input searchboxes
for searchers with special terms and without them.
