Fairly spiff. A word of advice -- by avoiding the crawl stage, you open a window of opportunity for those who might wish to spam your index. It's the same idea as the old trick of having a huge amount of keywords, but even simpler.

Obviously this is not a problem for all applications, and obviously one can filter incoming pages by whatever means desired, but it's important to remain aware that filtering may be necessary.
