Symbolics tape inefficiencies

Has anyone formally looked into the relative space efficiencies
of Symbolics tape facilities (LMFS dump and carry tape especially)
as compared to comparable UNIX programs like dump and tar? It seems
to me that the Symbolics are incredibly inefficient. Has anyone else
noticed this? Does anyone know why this might be so?
