I like that you've limited this JEP to how to ask the right question, 
and be assured of getting the right answer, rather than diving into the 
details of what is indexed, by whom, when, and in what format.  Such 
details are of course important for the implementation, but must remain 
implementation details that merely aid in optimization.
