I agree (with all of the above ;-).  Where it gets really interesting is 
with queries like "show me all documents with book references whose 
author's last name is Knuth (highlighting the reference in the 
summary)."  One might be able to create such a system based on a text 
search engine with special fields and some sophisticated query 
expansion, but it would be a lot easier if one had special support for 
"embedded structures" in the index -- like you need for XML indexing.

I'll be happy to continue this discussion over on solr-dev or wherever 
is appropriate.
