Another axis that I don't think you're yet measuring is how things 
change as the index grows.  What happens with 10k, 100k and 1M and 10M 
documents?  There are typically knees in search engine performance 
curves when indexes get substantially larger than RAM, and behaviour on 
either side of the knee may differ with different indexing strategies.
