Where base64 adds approximately 1/3, base85 only adds about 1/4. Of course there's a tradeoff. The Base85 alphabet includes characters that might not be as friendly as the base64 alphabet. While it's still only printable characters, the Ascii85 specification contains quotes (' and ") which needs escaping in many programming languages, and the ZeroMQ specification contains < and > which need escaping in most (all?) SGML languages.
