this would potentially become a major problem because it is nearly
impossible to efficiently evaluate expressions with distinct index
sources. e.g. consider the following simple query:

//element(*, nt:resource)[jcr:contains(., 'frequent-word')

this statement can be evaluated quite efficiently in lucene, but would
probably become an issue when the type constraint and the fulltext
expression come from distinct index structures. the only common
identifier is the node id, which is not necessarily the primary id in
both indices.
