Ideal to me would be as high as possible keeping energy in mind as 
well. It can be shown from a number of angles that better efficiency 
in the primary circuit can be had by running a lowish current. 
Consider also that the Vdrop associated with the gap becomes a 
less and less significant proportion of Vp as Vp climbs.
