Instead of taking the platform encoding ( which can be changed as von cloud
suggested ), we're creating a class specific private definition? This isn't
particularly dynamic and an override for those who want to use a platform
specific encoding. This is a maintenance nightmare. I think before you move
forward with it, think of someone who doesn't want this change and how
difficult it would be to utilize their own or a different encoding scheme.

At the very least you can create a singleton that creates a dynamic
encoding for that, which can be modified via the accumulo configuration.
