I used to know the commonly-used ones by heart, but that memory has
long bitrotted out of existence.

Yes, this is a major difference for many applications, and one reason
why I hated to have to use a 925 - I hate "occupy a screen position"
attribute cookies.

My memory is fuzzy on this point, but it does agree that the 950 and
925 were very similar.

Here are my private termcap file's entries for the 950 and 925,
reformatted into two columns for comparison.  Looking at them now, I
see some errors (for example, the 950 really should have :hs: as well,
and I'm not sure it should have :xn:), but these are what I've been
using.
