Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-8072:
-------------------------------------

There is a cost to log1p, I'm not sure we should do this per-hit.

> I noticed two things we could do to improve the accuracy of our scores:
>  - use {{Math.log1p(x)}} instead of {{Math.log(1+x)}}, especially when x is expected
to be small
>  - use doubles for intermediate values that are used to compute norms in BM25Similarity
