 Description   
When indexing for fields, it would be easier to have a catch-all field for terms not one of the other fields. Lets call this field the ELSE field.

For example, consider the following document:
<DOC>
<DOCNO>
<TITLE>a</TITLE>
b
</DOC>

If we index with FieldTags.process=TITLE,ELSE

then TITLE tag should contain a, and ELSE should contain b.

I'm happy that this bit of fields actually works, due to testing with various corpora. This change is committed, but some other changes from TREC-50 will be needed to use fields-indexing
