Subject RE: Facet on a Payload field type?
Date Wed, 23 Aug 2017 19:10:25 GMT
Technically they could, facetting is possible on TextField, but it would be useless for facetting.
Payloads are only used for scoring via a custom Similarity. Payloads also can only contain
one byte of information (or was it 64 bits?) 

Payloads are not something you want to use when dealing with translations. We handle facet
constraint (and facet field)  translations just by mapping internal value to a translated
value when displaying facet, and vice versa when filtering.
