Include query expansions in the new WDS usage logs

The new logs API call is very useful, however, it is missing the query expansion functionality to see what query actually got executed by WDS, instead of the NLQ coming through API. This is especially needed in client applications to understand where and when query expansion kicked in to be able to analyse the quality of results with the full understanding of what WDS received as input.
