the one thing to keep an eye on however is the "omitNorms" option on your
fields and field types ... in my experience, it makes sense to set it to
true for a large majority of dynamicFields, particularaly when you are
dealing with a lot of heterogenous document types.  it's really only an
issue for keeping your index size down, and it's very possibly that you
care more about having norms then you do about index size, but it's a
question you allways want to ask yourself when creating a dynamic field.
