Ah, I see the point.

IMO this is basically up to a deployment and its administrator to
worry about. If you define just one or two big indexes that cover most
of the repository, then switching to an alternative indexing mechanism
will be fairly straightforward. And if you need lots of small,
purpose-built indexes then migrating them all will take more work.

It's a bit like in a relational database where you can configure an
index to use one underlying data structure or another. The more
indexes you have, the more you need to do when you want to reconfigure
the indexes.
