Assuming there's a not missing there...  I don't think it's quite that
bad, most regulators do use one of the standard mapping functions and
for those that are likely to matter for performance there's usually a
calculation rather than a lookup table.  That said...

...I do agree that the current situation is probably adequate though,
the optimisation would be nice but it's mainly going to benefit corner
