Perhaps a fuller explanation of my question will help a little.
Below are two searches - one for casus pendens, and the other for casus pendens which are null.
Now these produce two non-intersecting sets of hits and I don't see a way to do the same search in just one construct - perhaps there is a way. So now I need to know that nulls would be present in order to search for them. Or at least I have to suspect so. I think it would be better if nulls were included in the first search and you could then weed them out if you were not interested. As it stands while the first search expresses no preference for either null or not null it gets only a subset of the complete results back.
Now, concerning implementation. Indeed the syntax module is an add-on and the text of the module does not include nulls where the syntax places them. I do not know how the syntax search for is actually implemented but combines searches of both the syntax tagging information and the text itself. I don't know how complex it would be to do or what the consequences might be on performance of searches. But the consequence of not doing it is that one must work out when multiple searches might be required and then do them.
The difference I suspect is whether one primarily searches the syntax tree or the text. For a syntax search the former makes sense to me.
