I think it probably can make sense...
 - finding top terms in a full-text field that match a query could be useful
 - the analysis could just be for normalization - trimming whitespace

 - it allows more flexibility on how to represent tags... one may
already have tags in a whitespace delimited field rather than separate
values in a multi-valued field.
