I agree with you that the current implementation is not optimized for queries 
that check the existence of a property. Your proposed solution seems reasonable, 
I would implement it the same way. There's just one minor obstacle, how do we 
implement this change in a backward compatible way? an existing index without 
this additional field should still work.
