I've been referred here by renke on #evince. The idea is that a

Personally I find such an idea awesome, but am worried about its
use-cases - how useful/how often?

Well, currently we have tracker-search to do that, unless you're talking

about a UI application?

I also request advice on the idea in general. If this were one of
several equally good/better ideas, would you be interested in voting
for it?

Not off the top of my head.

I think Mukund is thinking about OCR'ing all the images in PDF documents,
and add that to the "full text" part of tracker indexing. So that would be
part of the PDF extractor.
