 I gather the defaults are to store norms and to not store termvectors?

the defaults are omitNorms=false & storeTermVectors=false so we don't
store TV but do store norms by default. In production I usually
recommend to use your own FieldType and share the instance across
fields. In yourcase you can just do this:

FieldType t = new FieldType(TextField.TYPE_NOT_STORED);

new Field(...,t)
