Correct. However, if they aren't constant, it means that they may
get modified, which is an obvious problem. Making them non-static
would indeed initialize them at runtime (small cost), but they would
be guaranteed to have the value that we expect always.

I haven't looked at the code, maybe you can prove they are indeed
constant, but that's ugly. I'd take the trivial runtime hit, for
the sake of cleanliness.
