Parent issue: Search response improvements

Size (time): Large

Importance/Urgency: TBD

Problem Statement: Currently, the RFC search page does exactly what one would expect - it returns a list of RFCs that match the search criteria. It could be an interesting value-add if we could modify the search functionality to do more by adding context to the returned search criteria. For instance, returning links to the WG page where the document was created (if a the output of an IETF or IRTF WG).

Pros: This could help new participants to the I* in finding more information about how the RFC was created, where discussions happen, etc.

Cons: This may be beyond the scope of what should be done in-house. While this could offer very useful functionality, this is very complex search functionality which may in turn cost more than it is worth to the community.
