Should FieldInfos always use a dense encoding?

    Description

      Spin-off from LUCENE-8018. The dense vs. sparse encoding logic of FieldInfos introduces complexity. Given that the sparse encoding is only used when less than 1/16th of fields are used, which sounds uncommon to me, maybe we should use a dense encoding all the time?
