Not true: note that two methods (coord and querynorm) are not perfield
but global across the entire query tree.

By default these are disabled in the wrapper, as they only skew or
confuse most modern scoring algorithms (eg all the new ranking
algorithms in lucene 4) respectively.

So if you want to do per-field scoring where *all* of your sims are
vector-space, it could make sense to customize (e.g. subclass)
SchemaSimilarityFactory and do something useful for these methods.
