       Today DocValues Consumer/Producer require override 5 different methods, even if you only want to use one and given that one given field can only support one doc values type at same time.


      In the attached PR I’ve implemented a new modular version of those classes (consumer/producer) each one having a single responsibility and writing in the same unique file.

      This is mainly a refactor of the existing format opening the possibility to override or implement the sub-format you need.


      I’ll do in 3 steps:

      1. Create a CompositeDocValuesFormat and moving the code of Lucene80DocValuesFormat in separate classes, without modifying the inner code. At same time I created a Lucene85CompositeDocValuesFormat based on these changes.
      2. I’ll introduce some basic components for writing doc values in general such as:
        1. DocumentIdSetIterator Serializer: used in each type of field based on an IndexedDISI.
        2. Document Ordinals Serializer: Used in Sorted and SortedSet for deduplicate values using a dictionary.
        3. Document Boundaries Serializer (optional used only for multivalued fields: SortedNumeric and SortedSet)
        4. TermsEnum Serializer: useful to write and read the terms dictionary for sorted and sorted set doc values.
      3. I’ll create the new Sub-DocValues format using the previous components.
