In the full text index, you would need to provide the document range you want
to retrieve results over.  (As the user doesn't necessarily want to search all
documents in the corpus: they'd want to restrict to a particular list or a
particular collection of lists.)  So, mod_mbox wouldn't ask for the documents
related to those httpd has excluded.  Admittedly, I've only worked with
research-quality search backends; but that's been in all of them.

Quick look in the Lucene FAQ and it's here:

So, no, I think it's fine.  =)  You just have the bit fields set to exclude
the documents that httpd has ignored.  -- justin
