Unfortunately, this experiment has already happened and has failed.

Instead it just creates more work, especially when it comes time for
code maintenance. This is one reason why Solr is still using
deprecated analysis APIs and one reason why they cannot use Lucene

If there weren't so much duplication, then doing efforts such as this
would be easier, instead of having to convert two SynonymFilters we
would only have to convert one.
