Thank you for responding.  I know how I can override the behavior, what 
I want to find out is whether or not it's necessary to do so -- if it's 
not necessary because Solr skips it, then everything is good.  If it is 
necessary, I can open an issue in Jira asking for Solr to get smarter.  
That way everyone benefits and they don't have to do anything except 
upgrade Solr.
