Yes, "summary index" isn't good. I'm not sure where the block or the
filter part comes in though, so -1 to "block filter", not least
because it doesn't have a good abbreviation (bfin??).

A better description would be "block range index" since we are
indexing a range of blocks (not just one block). Perhaps a better one
would be simply "range index", which we could abbreviate to RIN or
