A detail I forgot to mention here is that this example is not hypothetical.
I was referring to boost-templates
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:CirrusSearch#boost-templates:>, which
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.
