Some ideas from the top of my head:

A basic problem is that the search index would include itself, so
maybe one has to have a separate node tree under
/jcr:system/searchIndex that is not covered by the search, observation
and/or other things that could lead to "circular" problems. Or
performance issues, if the involved binaries are touched very often
and also changed outside of sessions, eg. when a text extractor ran
later.

One "useful" feature of the search index on the file system is that if
it gets corrupted somehow, you can delete it and it will be re-built
upon startup. This should also work if it lies inside the content.
Thus a broken search index must not break repository startup or it
must be possible to delete it with a tool w/o requiring a full
repository start.

Regards,
Alex
