Yonik Seeley commented on SOLR-8396:
------------------------------------

bq. Is anything changing with DocValues in this issue?

Yes, see Tomas's previous comment:
bq. the plan is that PointFields will use SortedNumericDocValues

It doesn't matter so much if all of this gets done in 2 commits/issues or 10, 
but we should know where we're going and how we want to get there.

Actually, I just saw the comment from Tomas that addresses the most important 
part: "I throw an exception if the user tries to create a PointField with 
MultiValued DV".  So this nicely handles the concern about mixed DV types with 
point fields (sometimes SortedSetDocValues, sometimes SortedNumericDocValues).

> In LUCENE-6917, [~mikemccand] mentioned that DimensionalValues are better 
> than NumericFields in most respects. We should explore the benefits of using 
> it in Solr and hence, if appropriate, switch over to using them.
