I would vote for proto_tree_add_gsm_7bits_item() as TS 23.038 talks about 8 bits data and UCS2 encoding also and 
defines this alphabet as GSM 7bit. We should not put SMS in its name as it has a much wider use in 3GPP / 3GPP2.

3GPP2 isn't GSM. :-)  (Or, speaking as a North American, perhaps that should be :-( - at least with LTE maybe everybody 
will be doing their mobile phone/mobile-broadband-not-called-WiMAX-etc. stuff the same way, even if, with LTE, you are 
in a maze of twisty little frequency bands, all different.  Maybe someday in my lifetime all mobile 
phones/tablets/mobile-phone-modems/etc. will be world phones/etc.....)

That's why I'd vote for not putting "gsm" into the name, either; it's also used by ANSI IS-637-A.

And a "7 bit item" could be a single 7-bit field, so I'd vote for proto_tree_add_ts_23_038_7bits_item().
