Is it not appropriate to be partitioning by "style" in tax-priviledged accounts? Should I be "indexing" in my 401K as well?

If I understand your question, I should point out that partitiioning by style (that many refer to as slice and dice) and indexing are not mutually exclusive. Often when people hear of index funds they think only in terms of large broad based indexes such as the S&P500 or the Wilshire 5000 but the field is more extensive. There are small cap value index funds, small cap growth, large cap growth index funds, international index funds, and just about any combination you can think of. Of course, suitable funds of this type to cover all of the desired bases may not be available in your 401k.
So I think it is appropriate to think about both indexing and partitioning in both tax advantaged as well as taxable accounts.

Bob
