Oh for a chip with 21-bit wide registers!

There are other factors that might influence your choice.
For example, the relative cost of using 16-bit entities: on a Pentium it is
cheap, on more modern X86 processors the price is a bit higher, and on some
RISC chips it is prohibitive (that is, short may become 32 bits; obviously,
in such a case, UTF-16 is not really a good choice). On the other extreme,
you have processors where byte are 16 bits; obviously again, then UTF-8 is
not optimum there. ;-)
