Those structures usually allocate a 4KB- or 8KB- buffer each, so I don't
think squeezing two or three bytes would do a lot of difference
(performance probably wouldn't be affected either).

Also, I don't find the bitfield notation very readable (and it isn't
found anywhere else in the interpreter AFAIK), but that's just me :-)
