DirectoryString versus IA5 String

(I'm using openldap 2.2.14)

What should I consider when deciding whether to define local attributes as

SYNTAX Directory String (UTF-8)
SYNTAX Numeric String
SYNTAX Octet String
SYNTAX Printable String

Is it correct to think that if I "know" the data is restricted to ASCII, 
then the IA5 string version will perform a little better?
