> Spinoff of LUCENE-8007:
> If you omit term frequencies, we should score as if all tf values were 1. This is the
way it worked for e.g. ClassicSimilarity and you can understand how it degrades. 
> However for sims such as BM25, we bail out on computing avg doclength (and just return
a bogus value of 1) today, screwing up stuff related to length normalization too, which is
separate.
> Instead of a bogus value, we should substitute sumDocFreq for sumTotalTermFreq (all postings
have freq of 1, since you omitted them).
