Adrien Grand commented on LUCENE-9203:

Yes indeed, I remember another instance of it which I can't find again that 
only needed this class because it was trying to stuff everything into a base 
class when composition instead of inheritance would have made things even 
simpler.  I'm not completely opposed to making it public but I'd like to see a 
compelling use-case for it. You mentioned consuming all doc values in a generic 
manner but the couple cases I've seen were better served by using 
nextDoc/advance than advanceExact? We don't give ways to consume values in a 
generic manner either but I've not seen many asks for it?
