Extend document removal API to work with removal queries

There have been several issues discovered when working with discovery and very dynamic date / agile prototyping. It is not possible (currently) to remove multiple documents, just 1 at a time. Often in the beginning of a project the data is ingested / removed or changed multiple times, which forces you to create new collections rather then just clear the index or remove a batch of documents. This should be enabled via a normal discovery query. All documents, that match this query, can be removed. As a result, the users have better possibilities to manage the collection, prototyping and data preparation can be done at higher speed and the overall performance can be improved.

    This is very important feature that customer is asking to delete multiple documents from the collection.
