It only matters if you need immediate retrieval by id, but not
immediate searchability.

In most of these scenarios, Lucene/Solr is not used as the primary
data store.  Updates go directly to the database, and a separate
process periodically pulls changes from the database and indexes the

An interesting idea for integration on the search-side might be to
allow a hook to retrieve certain stored fields from other data sources
(like a DB) so that info need not be duplicated in the Lucene index if
it's big.  That does tie you tighter to the DB though (not a good
thing in general).
