Storing only the day in a 32-bits integer could save space, but I'm
not sure Solr should provide a type for all granularities of dates?
Have you tried to set your dates' hours, minutes, seconds and
milliseconds to 0 before indexing them ? This should help postings
lists share terms and improve storage efficiency (especially with the
new Lucene41PostingsFormat).
