I have the impression that we may be waiting here for something to happen
elsewhere in the Zope indexing code.

I don't want to write a long essay about it, but having thought a little about
what that something might be, I suspect that it may never happen, at least not
in the near future.

In short, it would be nice to send something with some structure, like XML, to
the indexing pipeline, which could then use a sophisticated set of tools to
decide how to index.
However, I don't think that this something/XML is ever going to be the raw XML
representing the document structure, and neither, probably, should it be.
Probably what is needed is an XML schema for "somewhat structured text to be
indexed".

In the meantime, it would be better to have something along the lines of what
has been suggested here, at least as a temporary solution. I'll try to lash
something together sometime today.
