I had a dig through and this seems like the most sensible thing to do
if you have a reasonable variety of tile heights. If you only see a
couple of combinations in the wild, then hardcoding them as separate
modifiers might make things easier than hiving off 24 bits. If you do
keep the split though, and especially if you're envisioning future
flexible tile formats, maybe something like an 8 code / 48 params
split would make more sense.

Either way, those are just my opinions (you did ask), and I don't see
anything really objectionable, so if you think that's a good split
then this is:
