I can imagine users wanting to search all those value types -- users
certainly might want to search contact names -- perhaps with the
exception of lf-name. If it's a simple matter of filtering out unhelpful
strings, that filtering should be done in gnus-search.el, as part of the
completion-at-point return process. If we wanted to build some extra
strings (for instance, searching on email address domain names only)
then that extra work could be done in BBDB.
