What is the purpose of the _s _st and _h indexed fields?

Super Champion

Can someone shed light on the purpose of the _s _st and _h indexed fields? These seem to correspond to source, sourcetype and host, but I'm not sure exactly how or why these were added in Splunk 4.x.

those are ids for source, sourcetype and host - they can be used for index regeneration purposes
