static1 was simply switching the indexes so static indexes are 1-61,
dynamic are 62-.   It was not the proposal to create an extra static bit,
but is much the same as 7+ allows 126 one byte values, so the first 64
dynamic entries are 1 byte only.

No change to the literals. If they use a static name then they index the
static table as 1-62.  If they are an indexed literal, then a header table
entry is created and the field will have a field index >61 when next used.
