At this time, no.

No, the forced indexing is a left-over from the first time time we
tried it out which also included a change to the
indexing_configuration.xml.  In fact, only a change to the
indexing_configuration.xml requires you to do a reindexation, and it
is a long outstanding issue that the indexing_configuration.xml should
be stored in the repository itself so that we can do a more controlled
re-indexation with only the nodes affected and automatically if needed

You can request the forced reindexation to become optional, which I
would support.  But without you requesting it formally it never
becomes on the scope of the radar of the roadmap.
