Because the "documents", i.e. the stored fields like e.g. "title" are 
usually scattered all over the disk. If you only need the IDs, those disk 
accesses are not required. But as you usually want to display something 
and the IDs are not stable (they can change when documents are added etc) 
the ID is usually not enough. But that is the Lucene point-of-view, I'm 
not familiar with with the layers added by Beagle.
