True, I could remove the trigger to rebuild the entire document. But what if a 
different field changes and the whole document is triggered for update for a 
different field. We have the same problem.

"But it also triggers a slow update that will rebuild the entire document..."

Why do you think this? The whole _point_ of in-place updates is that they don't 
have to re-index the whole document.... And the only way to do that effectively 
would be if all the fields are stored, which is not a requirement for in-place
