I believe it would be beneficial to have some controls for Universal Search.
For example, we publish tips on how to change the number of search results returned, http://t.co/HvyYfQNT but do we really want to encourage users to start editing configuration files?
Can I suggest a couple of controls are added to the user interface.
Checkbox: Turn Off Universal Search (Default is Off). This disables the indexing service.
Slider, or some other control, to add or decrease the number of search results returned.
