Any indexed field can be faceted on ... it's hard to be sure what exactly 
your goal is, but if you ultimately want to be able to have a list of 
search results, and then display facet info like "Number of results 
containing an email address" and "Number of results containing a URL" then 
yes: as long as you have a way of extracting that metadata and including 
it in an indexed field, you can facet on it ... you could use Field 
Faceting on something like a "properities: field (where all the indexed 
values are "contains_email" and "containes_url", etc...) or you could use 
facet queries to check arbitrary criteria (ie: facet.query=has_email:true 
& facet.query=urls:[* TO *], etc...
