A system with 2984 will have different system value defaults, different
CCSIDs associated with some fields in IBM supplied outfiles, a different
CCSID associated with the system cross reference file, and the like.  These
differences may or may not be significant to your environment, but do
provide a sufficiently different system environment from 2924 that users
may want to continue using 2984.

For existing 2984 systems (or a new system entering into an existing
network) there is no clear reason for them to change to 2924.  For a brand
new system you have your choice.

If a V5R3 system with an SBCS primary language can support DBCS secondary
languages, then what is the use for Primary Lang 2984 English U/L DBCS?
(why would anyone ever need a DBCS English language feature?)

The reason I ask is because we're working on the config for a new i5 and
we've configured it with 2984 as the primary (with intent to install 5562
DBCS as one of the secondaries). Prior to V5R3 it would have been necessary
to do it this way, but I'm wondering if it still is or if we could have
2924 as primary instead. If either one would work, any pros/cons either
