No. Think about the view index as a set of cards in a card sorter. You need to know where
to start searching.
If you need to search a card according to elem4name and elem5name, build a view for that.

Please note that you never need to emit the document.
You can "emit([elem1, elem2, elem3, elem4, elem5], null)"
and then get the view with "include_docs=true".
You'll get a smaller index on disk and I suppose you will need less memory and CPU to handle
