note that originally the spatial index *was* written to disk; try running
GRASS 5.7.0 and see (?? not sure exactly when it was removed).
Anyway it was removed after 1-2 years of running with it.
Not a technical answer or argument against it, but be aware that it was
removed with a lot of experience doing it the other way.
further detail can be found in the mailing list archives from the time
it was removed. (maybe same time v.build.all was added?)
