We're far enough removed from an actual feature, I'm not sure if we're
disagreeing about anything concrete :-)

Going back to Grant's original question, I think it's just a matter of
documentation for specific fieldTypes.
A certain fieldType like geo1 could index the lat and lon as separate
numeric fields.  That would be a specific behavior to that fieldType
that users would know about if they wanted to construct elementary
queries on lat or lon only.  That would not be supported in all geo
types of course - it's an implementation detail that may or may not be
part of the interface... it depends on what makes sense for the
particular fieldType.

I don't think it's useful to somehow programmatically access the list
of fields that a fieldType could output.
