It's only 1.5M, however the majority of the other documents are in the 
10-100k region so it is large in comparison.

Our fragmentation policy is to keep each article in it's own fragment so 
that we can use the estimate function with some degree of success. Or 
have I misunderstood the effects of fragmentation on the calculation of 
the estimate. As I understand it fragmenting an article will result in 
that article being counted into the estimate once for each time that a 
fragment matches. How would fragmenting the article speed up cts:highlight?
