Given that the "replacements" are also the sort of characters that 
humans might confuse, reducing the number of collisions would seem to be 
useful, or are more of the collisions caused by 'weakness' of the hash, 
rather than two numberplates having the same pre-hash text after the 
replacement function has been run?
