+1 for omitNorms to be viral.

> omitTF is viral. if you add document 1 with field "foo" as omitTF, then document 2 has
field "foo" without omitTF, they are both treated as omitTF.
> but omitNorms is the opposite. if you have a million documents with field "foo" with
omitNorms, then you add just one document without omitting norms, 
> now you suddenly have a million 'real norms'.
> I think it would be good for omitNorms to be viral too, just for consistency, and also
to prevent huge byte[]'s.
> but another option is to make omitTF anti-viral, which is more "schemaless" i guess.
