            Old matching classes used to initialise documents scores to 0. However:

            • OldBaseMatching has been removed from Terrier 4.
            • taat.Full uses AccumulatorResultSet internally
            • daat.Full uses CandidateResultSet internally
            • Both do not retrieve documents with score 0.
