I did not see this message before but now copying here my reply from 4.1 

Why cannot it be pluggable? Why indexed search has preference over 
others? It is not the best way to search sites (slow, resource-hungry, 
no relevance, ...), it is mainly used due to absence of a good search 
engine. As soon as someone makes mngoSearch extension for typo3, indexed 
search will not be that popular.

I think this thing should be removed completely and replaced with a hook 
to collect all modules that need reference updates and execute code from 
those modules.
