Frédéric Dubut from Bing said on Twitter "Every time we evaluate a ranking improvement, we look at the trade-off between cost and value." He added that this discussion is not always a fun topic but it is a necessary one.

In fact, he said this is often the most overlooked piece of general search. He said "Scale and operating cost are often the most overlooked characteristics of a general web search engine."

When you do queries at that scale, it is a very important aspect to look at when making changes to how search works. One small change can be very costly and yet not drive that much value.
