Fuzzy query inside spans in elasticsearch 6.x


according to documentation match query should be used instead of fuzzy query and fuzzy will be removed in version 6.0. See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/query-dsl-fuzzy-query.html

Clearly, match query with fuzziness can serve same purpose as fuzzy query in most cases. However, match query is not allowed inside span_multi. See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/query-dsl-span-multi-term-query.html

Is there going to be some other way how to define fuzzy match inside span in version 6.0 or is elasticsearch simply going to lose this functionality?
