Perhaps doable, but every slave would need to re-index the same
documents pulled from the db.  It would be more CPU and resource
intensive and harder to keep in sync.  If you get a corrupted disk,
how to you recover except to rebuild everything from the db (and that
means a long outage).

Same issues go for other document distribution methods such as using a
message queues.

Anyway, if this type of distribution works for you, use it!
Solr's distribution mechanism is optional.
