Description

There is a hard limit of 20 tags returned. If a site has many many tags that include a specific string, when they use the type and search functionality in WordPress they don't get all the tags they expect returned.

Another limitation of how it currently works is; because it only returns max 20 results, the user tends to create a new tag when that tag already exists (but was not included in the 20 suggested results) so we get many duplicate tags.

The specific request is to alter the tag search functionality to return more tag results or offer the ability to return paged results.

We can see that default (20) is set here: https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/blob/2e01f2208e1e43492236684315f1654cb54e2973/packages/editor/src/components/post-taxonomies/flat-term-selector.js#L31
