I believe that if the optimizer thinks that >20% of the result set contains
requested data,  It will not use the index it will use Sequential/Skip

After that it might build an index for the rest of the needs(order by,
Having, Joining, etc)
It might build a Bitmap and do further refinements via XOR/AND type things
on the bitmap.
