We actually do this in our fork of the headless builder - we added a command line argument "-no-indexer" that disables the indexer. I guess we can contribute that if there is interest. Maybe there is no need for a command line argument at all and it can always be disabled.

I'm not sure how clean our code is, judging from the comments; it does not use IIndexManager.addIndexerSetupParticipant(...). I'm including it below in case anyone wants to take a look.

A quick bugzilla search also turned up this request for the same thing:
