Could minimum_should_match return missing terms in response?

If I am searching on "one two three four five" with minimum_should_match at
80%, and I have a document containing a field with "one two four five".

It matches, but I would like to know which token(s) weren't present in the
document so I can present that to the user in the UI via a strikethrough
word. It seems like that could be returned in each hit as "_missing"
alongside "_score", "_id", etc.

Is that information on missing terms available or shall I create a feature
