Other than performance per David's and Marvin's ideas, the functionality
benefits of having this in the core are probably not compelling. I've
been able to hook almost everything and reference a global field model
at the application level (except for QueryParser which needs some
patches to enhance extensibility for some of these features). It just
seemed that a global field model was so useful that it might be a
beneficial extension to the core, so I was curious what others thought
about this.

Thanks for your thoughts,
