4 million documents is nothing - many people routinely search on much 
larger Lucene Indexes than that.  Test first.  Then find and fix your 
bottlenecks and/or high memory use items.  My hunch is that you will 
discover that you are wasting time worrying about potential problems 
that will not occur.  You time would be better spent doing some real 
testing, and working to improve your code from there, as you discover 
real (rather then potential) problems.
