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.

(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 way?
