While we're at it, would some other non-standard rate _between_ 4800
and 9600 work?  What is the maximum rate we could get through
voice-grade rigs without modification, even if we have to change to
a different type of modulation?

There's no reason we have to stick to any standard rate over the
air.  From the TNC to the computer, yes.
