The angle I was trying to take was, for performance, how CPU-cacheable a 
transcoding routine
is. For an ASCII-based 8-bit set, you only need the additional entries 
(e.g. 94, 96, etc.) but
for an EBCDIC set (and an entity with non-minimal characters) there is 
much more chance
that the transcoding won't interact with the cache well (depending on 
sizes, etc.)
