There are places where lexical collation is clearly wrong approach 
("Your discovery-layer search for 'bear' returned 1.5 million hits, here 
are the first 20: 'Aardvark bears of Africa', 'Aardvark bears of 
Antarctica' ...") and some where are less clear ("Your search for 'Barak 
Obama' did not match any name records, the closest matches were: 'Barack 
Obama / Barack Hussein Obama II (1961-)', ...").
