    Description

      TermsQuery helps when there are lot of terms from which you would like to compute the union, but it is a bit harmful when you have few terms since it cannot really skip: it always consumes all documents matching the underlying terms.

      It would certainly help to rewrite this query to a ConstantScoreQuery over a BooleanQuery when there are few terms in order to have actual skip support.

      As usual the hard part is probably to figure out the threshold.
