I think a combination of set_theme_capability() and Otto's suggestion  
RE templates might be best.

That is: rather than indicating on a page by page basis if it's  
compatible, do it on a  _template by template_ basis.  In the theme,  
each page template has to have a marker that indicates "search  

Either way, I'm all for adding an excerpt field to pages, just on  
general principle.  This could be useful for more than just search:   
Imagine, for example, a site index page that shows the name of the  
page _and_ the description, drawn from that field.
