I have a continuously updating set of documents (a mailing list archive)
and I think it's pretty easy to come up with a scheme that allows you to
have a small number of relatively static indexes. I update my index
every 7 minutes, which means that you can often find a document in the
index before it's done delivering to all 500 recipients. It does mean
that the set that changes has to be rather well-defined and the static
part needs to be relatively static, but I don't think this is
necessarily a "weak" point.
For "weak point" I'd say "document deletion" is the big one for me :)
