This is great stuff! I know quite a few projects that will love this - 
specifically to boost terms differently based on a POS tag.

We had a discussion recently in Nutch about changing the way typical 
Nutch queries are translated into Lucene queries, and performance 
implications there. If you're looking for a challenge ;) could you 
perhaps take a look at this discussion and see if you could contribute 
something? ;)

Thanks in advance!
