I suggest you ....

Search should find site home pages!

I should be able to put metadata on pages in SharePoint and use search to find them via that metadata--always.

I want to create page directories for users by which I can configure the user experience to search and find the pages that I flag with a given property ("Germany" or "mobile" for example). However, Microsoft Support (Service request #SRX616021594549282ID) confirms to me that if a page is flagged as the home page of a site, it can no longer be searched and found via metadata.

This is astonishing--that a page disappears from search (via metadata) when a user flags it as the home page. This is a serious handicap to the oft-promoted concept of search-driven user experience.
