In order to keep down the table size, one can do a hybrid, by giving
compression numbers to the N most frequent code points; then compress
the rest by applying some character encoding, and use a byte
compression scheme. The number N will then depend on how large the
text body is: if it is sufficiently large, all code points might be
given compression numbers.
