Your use case should not start from data stored, but from the queries
you want to search. Then you massage your data to fit that.

Don't worry too much about 'duplicate' too much at this stage. You
could delete the historical records if needed. Or index them without

What you should try to avoid is updating a record, as - under the
covers - a completely new record is created anyway. That's how the
search speed is achieved.
