> Since we now have stats for points fields, it's easy to know up front whether the field
you are about to build a BKD tree for is single valued or not.
> If it is single valued, we can optimize space by not storing the ordinal to identify
a point, since its docID also uniquely identifies it.
> This saves 4 bytes per point, which for the 1D case is non-trivial (12 bytes down to
8 bytes per doc), and even for the 2D case is good reduction (16 bytes down to 12 bytes per
> This is an optimization ... I won't push it into 6.0.
