Although I completely agree that server-side queryability is something
we should ask from Google, I'd like to follow up on:

Could you elaborate? Do you mean 'hard' or 'impossible'?
Meanwhile, I've extended the google book classes (libx.org/gbs ) to
provide more flexibility; it now supports these classes:
gbs-thumbnail Include an <img...> embedding the thumbnail image
gbs-link-to-preview Wrap span in link to preview at GBS
gbs-link-to-info Wrap span in link to info page at GBS
gbs-link-to-thumbnail Wrap span in link to thumbnail at GBS
gbs-if-noview Keep this span only if GBS reports that book's
viewability is 'noview'
gbs-if-partial-or-full Keep this span only if GBS reports that book's
viewability is at least 'partial'
gbs-if-partial Keep this span only if GBS reports that book's
viewability is 'partial'
gbs-if-full Keep this span only if GBS reports that book's viewability is 'full'
gbs-remove-on-failure Remove this span if GBS doesn't return bookInfo
