If you're using both shadows and descenders, you may want to make the capitals 6 pixels tall.

Top left: underlying black-and-white image
Top right: 3bpp
Bottom left: 2bpp without shadow
Bottom right: 2bpp with shadow

I've reordered the encoding to ASCII, and in each, rows 7 and 8 are the lowercase with some glyphs slightly enlarged for readability.

I always think it's important to consider the corruption of a font under the system's signal generation. It can make a big difference in legibility. Here's Blargg's NTSC filter applied to tepples' example.
