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

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.
