Absolutely.  A key point of the fact that there are multiple
SpatialStrategy classes is that there are multiple ways to index “spatial
data” with different use-cases.  So by all means, use as many of them that
you need.    For example, perhaps you might also use PointVectorStrategy
for distance-sorting to a center-point.  (BBoxStrategy can do that too…
albeit with a bit more work since it must calculate the center-point from
twice as many values 2 -> 4).

p.s. I’ve seen your code that uses Lucene spatial on GitHub (our friend
Bruce pointed me at it) and commented on a commit but I haven’t seen a
response from you.  Perhaps you don’t have notifications set up to alert
