No, not unlimited, current machines still have finite resources.
As to consistency warranties, with the current file systems, additional hierarchies cannot be updated instantly. The main hierarchy would need to be monitored. Since the additional hierarchies can depend on the contents of the files, a sane approach would be to have the entries disappear from the additional index while the file is being written to and have it possibly reappear after the updated file has been analyzed.
Such additional hierarchies could be implemented by having a daemon that creates hard links.
