The two points are not exclusive :
When you ask Nepomuk to return all the files related to keyword foo, 
what does the runner doo ? Only filter on filename, or use tags too, etc...
Searching in any metadata is of course possible, but obviously we need 
some "weighting" of the properties here (a simple answer could be : 
weight = # of properties matching keyword, most "heavy" answers first).
