Pretty much. There has been discussion about allowing index-only access to
"frozen" tables, i.e. archive partitions.  But it all sort of hinges on
someone implementing it and testing ....

Would be interesting as a parameter to set at index creation (ie. if you know this table will have a lot of reads and few writes)... like create an index on columns X,Y keeping data on columns X,Y and Z...
        But in this case do you still need the table ?
Or even create a table type where the table and the index are one, like an auto-clustered table...
        I don't know if it would be used that often, though ;)
