I am a bit worried that using multiple blobs (one for each text field) for each content item in a large site will result in many many small files, which will cause performance problems at the OS/filesystem level. Not all filesystems can do tail packing which means you will loose a lot of diskspace, and the amount of files can slow down directory operations and fsck.
