Being able to integrate totally different indexing mechanisms can be
useful if Oak can provide such extension points. For example to
integrate different types of indexing systems (Solr, Stanbol,
image/media indexing) so as to be able to query them with the same API
that's used for the native repository indexes.

Such indexes can of course be integrated in higher layers, but if the
Oak design allows them that would be useful.
