Randy Puttick commented on LUCENE-517:

Thanks Yorik, this could work for my purposes; it'd be nice to have a choice on a per-field
basis don't you think?

> The scheme of compressing document norms to one byte loses a lot of information.  This
completely breaks search ranking on small fields because there is no way to see the difference
between documents with shorter and longer fields that contain the same number of matching
query terms.  Unfortunately the export of norms as a byte array seems to be pretty well embedded
in the code base so a fix would seem to require a major rev.
