Thanks for the response on this, Shay.
Glad to hear that Boost Functions are on the road map and am quite
interested to see what you come up with. Do you plan on following suite with
SOLR, or integrating some into the Query DSL? Do you have a grammar for the
query DSL? It might be interesting to define the scoring in the Query DSL,
especially if you formalize the grammar.
I have worked a little bit with Lucene Similarity classes, but if you have
the time, documenting the process would be appreciated.

Boost functions are certainly on the roadmap. You can also plug in your own
Similarity (Lucene) implementation to further control the scoring. Its not
documented (yet), but its there. So if you want that, I can point you on how
to do it.

An integral part of quality search results comes from ranking through
static quality scores, described here in Manning's IR book:
In SOLR, one is able to affect ranking through boost functions,
applied to the final query scoring, which can work to be a kind of
"online" quality score. I have scoured the elasticsearch
documentation, but have not been able to find similar functionality.
Does elasticsearch not have this capability? Is this a planned
