Yes, if users are interested. This is an incredibly early idea that is not
fully fleshed out; we don't know how we would achieve something like this
right now. A naïve example of how we could do something like this is by
boosting the score of certain search results based on the presence of
templates on the page. The reality would likely be something significantly
more complex than this.
A detail I forgot to mention here is that this example is not hypothetical.
I was referring to boost-templates
one can already use in CirrusSearch. This work predates the Discovery
Department. So, in that sense, public curation of relevance already exists
in some sense. My point was that building on this is not something we're
working on right now.
