I disagree (see below and my other email for reasons).

It works without it (it simply has to), but that doesn't mean the  
whole indexing story can't be made more efficient if we actually  
*had* this kind of information to go along with the event.

I don't see why you couldn't simply send along the information if you  
already know it. It's not like Luciano doesn't have this information  
at hand when he's sending the event. It also costs 1 more line of  
code (and an appropriate convenience helper may event cut down on  
that, in case you're worrying about that).
