When using of database specific features (instead of 3rd party solutions) is justified, especially on the beginning stage of the project?
Example: Postgres has full-text search, which do not support some features of search engines (i.e. facets) but is pretty acceptable for my needs. It requires postgres-specific extensions. But if I use postgres extensions instead of ElasticSearch, I'll bind myself to postgres. Is that a bad practice?
Am I right if I say that all new projects should start with RDBMs (due query flexibility, data normalization) and than migrate to i.e. NoSQL if needed?
If yes, than using db-specific features interfere db migrations in future, and is a bad practice. Also extensions can break db migration tools like Flyway.
