Search is a critical feature in all online services, especially for a service 
with a mission to "empower and engage people around the world to collect and 
develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and 
to disseminate it effectively and globally". 

Putting resources to improve search is no a "major strategic decision”. it is 
business-as-usual.

Also federated / semantic search to all the Wikipedia projects and outside 
sources of free content is definitely worth of exploring. Any  strategies 
should have space to explore things that are advancing the mission.
