> By having separate tables it gives us the freedom to use different types of loads, which is something we are interested in doing in the future (possibly when newer instructions are available) and merging them now would only make that more difficult in the future. Also I believe the way the code is written now, only one table is instantiated during build/runtime, so there is no memory overhead. I believe keeping it as is is advantageous from a code maintenance perspective and incurs no overhead.
Ok then. Looks good to me.
