Aggregations: Return an upper bound of the maximum error for terms #6696
The fact that terms aggregations don't give accurate counts is a bit deceptive. Without changing the way they are implemented, maybe we should make terms aggregations return an upper bound of the maximum error on the document count as part of the response? I think this would help make clear that there are potential accuracy issues, as well as make this inaccuracy easier to manage since there is a known upper bound on the error?
