Yes, I'll do that as part of the StopwordAnalyzerBase changes

> bq. I think it would make a good default for most Lucene users, and we should graduate it from the analyzers module into core, and make it the default for IndexWriter.
> This "StandardAnalyzer" is specific to English, as it removes English stopwords.
> That seems to be an odd choice now for a few reasons:
> - It was argued in the past (rather vehemently) that Solr should not prefer english in it's default "text" field
> - AFAIK, removing stopwords is no longer considered best practice.
> Given that removal of english stopwords is the only thing that really makes this analyzer english-centric (and given the negative impact that can have on other languages), it seems like the stopword filter should be removed from StandardAnalyzer.

> When trying to fix the backwards incompatibility issues in LUCENE-7318, it looks like most unrelated code moved from analysis module to core (and changing package names!!!! :( ) was related to word list loading, CharArraySets, and superclasses of StopFilter. If we follow Yonik's suggestion, we can revert all those changes. I agree with hin, an "universal" analyzer should not have any language specific stop-words.
> The other thing is LowercaseFilter, but I'd suggest to simply add a clone of it to Lucene core and leave the analysis-module self-contained.
