In addition to the explicit factors in this equation, other factors can be
on a per-query basis as part of the queryNorm factor. Queries themselves can
have an impact on the document score. Boosting a Query instance is sensible
in a multiple-clause query; if only a single term is used for searching,
boosting it
would boost all matched documents equally. In a multiple-clause boolean
some documents may match one clause but not another, enabling the boost
