This sounds like a bad idea to me; even when only doing it in batches, this will increase the number of write operations (reindexation, journal entries) significantly.

Could you take a look at the google analytics addon?  It displays data collected by GA in the context if a document.  Other analytics engines could be supported in a similar manner, though I'm not aware of any examples.

The big advantage is that such specialised analytics solutions are optimized for writing log data.  Whereas the content repository and the hst have been optimized for reading / rendering content.

Yeah, you'll need to skip the check-in part to not get new versions.
