> Each time we access an index using a value, we do a normalization of this value. This
is potentially an costly operation, which is mostly a duplicated work. In order to spare such
an operation, a cache is added to the index, but it has two drawbacks :
> - first the cache is small (default size is 100, just enough to store 50 values at most,
as we register both the normal value and the normalized value)
> - second, this cache is synchronized to avoid inconsistencies, so it induce some contention
> We should assume that the value is *always* normalized when we use such an index, and
remove this extra normalization, and the associated cache.
> Note that we may use a Attribute value, or a Long (for the reverse index), so it would
be quite a good idea to create two different type of indexes :
> - AttributeType index
> - ID indexes
> instead of using generic indexes all the time. 
> Last, in order to be sure that we use normalized values, it's enough to add a flag in
the Value<?> class to tell if the value is normalized or not. If it's not, we just have
to normalize it.
