Useful examples for the range query (vs. range filter)

Hi all,

I am trying to come up with an example where a range query would be better or make more sense than a range filter. I understand the differences between the range query and the range filter (see also The difference between range query and range filter?), which is amongst others that the query modifies the score but the filter does not.

If I use a range query, I only get results which match the range. But don't they match all "in the same quality", so the score of all documents would be increased by the same value, wouldn't it?

Maybe someone can give me an example where it would make sense to use a range query over a range filter.
