If one needs to search the same data with both unranked boolean 
operators and with ranked proximity, one could use different fields.  If 
that's an acceptable answer, then we might get away with a single 
posting file per segment.  Back-compatibility will be a pain, but we 
probably shouldn't let that drive the design.
