Thanks for the link Shalin... played with that a while back.. It's
possibly got some indirect possibilities.

Assume the 'documents' are not stored in the same index and I want to
only store the taxonomy or ontology in this index.

Instead of indexing documents about 'sports' and searching for hits
based upon 'basketball', 'football' etc.. I simply want to index the
taxonomy and classify documents into it.  This is a an ancient
AI/Data-Mining discipline.. but the standard methods of 'indexing' the
taxonomy are/were primitive compared to what one /could/ do with
something like Lucene.

Here's a 2007 research paper that used Lucene directly for
classification, but doing the inverse of what I described:

Exactly.. in the December Taxonomy thread Walter Underwood outlined a
store/classify/delete procedure.  Too slow if you have no need to
index the document itself.
