If there hadn't been two free bits, I'd be more hesitant to approve
this scheme. The thing you're missing in your calculations of how
much memory is used by these attributes are the auto variables.
I'm sure they dwarf global variables by a large margin.
But since you'd not be having to add another word of flags, then I
think this is ok.
