MHO - choose dialect 3, so that you can implement Dialect 3 features
in the future without conversion problems - such as keyword
differences and maths changes (int64 support). Also this way your
data types can explicitly state the date/time/timestamp requirement of
a field.

I doubt if there is much in the way of performance difference either
