For any additional metadata you want to search for, you compute it in
your application (on write or in an observation listener) and put it
into separate properties. These can then be used in your normal JCR
Xpath or SQL search. This might not enable all advanced indexing
features you can do with a plain Lucene, but should still cover a lot.
And adding additional properties in JCR is fine - it's more about
de-normalization than what you are typically taught with relational
