I would tend to agree with Linda that it is a poorly chosen default.

It works well with remote server with slow links.

They never got that many IMAP servers had search abilities that
run quite a bit quicker than a javascript-searches--and that IMAP
servers were really like file-systems -- not something to
downloaded like POP mail that they predominantly dealt with...

IMAP has search capabilities indeed. But how many do have full text
search with an index by default?

Impossible to say - I guess the TB folks think it's unusual for a
server to have.

I have attempted a few times searches using my local dovecot imap

My Thunderbird can search via IMAP pretty fine.
