The argument against using the internationalized phonetics seems to be
increased time to use vs. other wording. This is offset somewhat by a higher
rate of repeats.
Perhaps one way to solve this conundrum is to use good judgment. If you work a
non-domestic callsign, use the the international phonetics.
