I doubt many humans would narrow their search beyond "pistachios". 
However, I can certainly imagine a home automation system using 
"unsalted pistachios" as part of a query to find recipes matching the 
ingredients left in your fridge and larder.

So I guess it boils down to whether we want to support such applications 
with today's markup in the future, even if they're not commonplace now.
