I am not 100% sure, but position increment gap is set to 1 for FieldMaskingSpanQuery to work.

I think the issue here is "helpful" vs. "information overload". I feel
each individual element is helpful but overall they become information
overload and people are just afraid to actually read through their
configuration files. Which means some other non-default
actually-important settings are missed as well. Which, ironically,
also negates "the user does not have to wonder" part because they
never get that far.

How would we do that specifically? My intuition (probably wrong) says
that making that setting non-zero for dates/ints/longs does not
actually do anything useful at all. Or does it? How does the
phrase/proximity match works for non-text fields? I admit being
somewhat confused on that.
