An alternative would be to add an extra stream to binary
InternalValues. That stream (if present) would contain the result of
text extraction on the binary value and could then be used for

In fact last week at the ApacheCon I was discussing with the Lucene
people about a way to store the analyzed token stream to further
optimize the re-indexing case. Apparently that should be possible with
little effort.

The problem with this is that we'd need to move the text extraction
functionality down to the persistence or item state layer. The current
configuration mechanism we have isn't too well adjusted for this and
things like using the value of the jcr:mimeType property to guide text
extraction might become quite tricky. But I don't see any fundamental
reason why those issues could not be resolved.
