You can be sure that smart re-indexing of manually copied files is among my 
requirements as well. However, my approach to bugs in Debian packages would 
not be "let us stay away" but rather to bring this requirement up to the 
attention of the packagers or upstream developers so that they can fix it.

In this particular case, I've just talked to the developers. They clearly said 
that by design file-based access is possible, when afterwards the index (the 
database cache) is rebuilt through a d-bus call or an inotify trigger. When it 
still doesn't work for you, please file a wishlist report against the 
packaging metadata for starting the trigger from /etc/init.d or something.
Discussing this further on this list would be seriously off-topic, especially 
since I'm not necessarily advocating for Akonadi and instead advocate for 
reaching a big picture diagram first before drawing any decisions.
