Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-4127:
-------------------------------------

+1! i feel like we should be able to eventually refactor/cleanup docinverter after this (with
the silly correction removed),
but I think this should happen under another issue!

> If offsets go negative or backwards, it can corrupt the index with DOCS_AND_FREQS_AND_POSITIONS_AND_OFFSETS:
the offsets will have wrong values (different from the term vectors) or even crazy values
like -2147483645
> The problem with this is that its not just theoretical: its too easy to do this with
lucene's own analyzer chains (e.g. ngramtokenizer).
>  
> See issues such as LUCENE-3920 and some discussion on LUCENE-3738
> The question is how to fix this, e.g. should we:
> # start enforcing that offsets cannot be crazy values in OffsetAttributeImpl/IndexWriter
and fix the broken analyzers
> # leave offsets as a pair of opaque integers, declaring this a limitation of the current
codec, and either workaround or throw UOE from the postings writer.
