Very cool!

> Currently, {{WordDelimiterFilter}} doesn't try to set the {{posLen}} attribute and so
it creates graphs like this:

we fixed LUCENE-7603, with this change here you should be able to use positional queries with

a hole when whole token is just delimiters).
> Surprisingly, it's actually quite easy to tweak WDF to create a graph (unlike e.g. {{SynonymGraphFilter}})
because it's already creating the necessary new positions, and its output graph never has
side paths, except for single tokens that skip nodes because they have {{posLen > 1}}.
 I.e. the only fix to make, I think, is to set {{posLen}} properly.  And it really helps that
it does its own "new token buffering + sorting" already.
