Mapping and suggest feature


I was playing around a bit with the suggest api as well as with mlt and
flt. What I was wondering: the docs for mlt states that in order to use the
mlt feature a mlt_field needs to be either be stored, store term_vector or
source needs to be enabled. I couldnt find a note like this for suggest,
but my tests show that it is still needed. Am I wrong? Could you add a line
of clarification about mapping in the docs?
