TermScorer currently doesn't iterate over the positions. It uses a 
buffer to load 32 doc/freq pairs from TermDocs using the read() method. 
In order to use per-term boosts you would have to change the TermScorer 
to not use a buffer anymore and use instead. Then you 
can iterate over the positions and get the payloads. This is a 
significant change to TermScorer and performance would probably suffer 
for indexes that don't have payloads. I actually admit that I had the 
same in mind (I mentioned that in LUCENE-761), but after looking closer 
at TermScorer I changed my mind here.

I believe the better option is to create a new scorer subclass like 
WeightedTermScorer which should be used if payloads containing per-term 
boosts are stored in the index.
