Why can't searches with "or" be done with a simple comma instead of multiple search layers?

For hundreds of thousands of us using Lotus Approach and desperate for a current alternative, we feel the search commands of Approach make more sense. When search for addresses in AL, AR, MO, MS, KY, & TN . .  . we simply type in the state field "AL, AR, MO, MS, KY, TN

 

In FileMaker, we must enter "AL" then search, then start a new search and type "AR", then search, then start a new search . . .

 

When looking at search request, it is not obvious which, if any, "OR" requests are made.
