in thread Refining a 'vector space search'.

Is it enough to represent the values in 0/non-zero like that? That is, do we just need to know that "places 4, 11, 145, 519, 1238 are all non-zero"? I mean, in the vector I displayed as the example above, you see that they are broken down into what appears to be cos themselves(?) and everything is either 0 or a point between 0 and 1. So when performing a calculation on your above example, would "places 1,5 and 8 are positive" be just as fruitful as "place 1 is 0.02453, place 5 is 0.42128 and place 8 is 0.242112"?
