The "uniqueValuesFor" is an artifact of the way indexes are
implemented: a mappings. They map index terms to lists of
objects indexed under the corresponding term.
Most mappings have a "keys()" method. It gives the

That said, if you want to have "uniqueValuesFor" a subset
of the catalog, you cannot use this "keys()" method.
You must do it yourself:

  Select the objects you want, build a dictionary mapping
  the attribute you are interested in to something (say 1)
  and use the "keys()" method of this dict.
