Is it possible to map domains to nothing? For example, in

domainMapping="automotive '', medical medicine, 'criminal law' law, 
'property law' law"

automotive is just ignored. I don't really know whether this makes 
sense, but it seems that if you are dealing with keywords, such as in 
the HTML5 spec

<meta name="keywords" content="british,type 
face,font,fonts,highway,highways">

it seems that you might want to exclude a bunch of keywords in order to 
home in on the key domain information. That might be easier to do in 
that way, rather than in mapping them all to a different word.
