Forward link operator on MS Live Search

Microsoft has added forward link search to Live Search. Unfortunately it is pretty useless, because you can only search for links from a domain, not a particular URL, and in fact by domain I mean second level domain, e.g. classy.dk but not www.classy.dk. So if your site is in the UK (where domains for sale are all subdomains of co.uk) you're just out of luck. I have a hard time coming up with a good reason for this restriction. It pretty much kills the usefulness of the feature, which would otherwise have given me the tag hack for free.
