[Rasch] How does one construct a score table?

Suppose that the items are scored 0 - 5 giving a possible observed score range of 0 to 75.  There is a 1-1 correspondence between observed score and Rasch measure so assuming all 75 possible scores were observed, wouldn't it  be adequate to publish a table giving the 75 observed scores and the associated measure values, in say the mean 0 variance 1 metric?  Or am I missing something that justifies the complexity of rmt122q!

If you want to code your own routine:  www.rasch.org/rmt/rmt122q.htm
<http://www.rasch.org/rmt/rmt122q.htm>Input the item and threshold difficulties, and then each possible raw score in turn.

How does one construct a scoring table that gives the corresponding Rasch scores for 6 point scale items from raw scores.  Let us say we have 150 participants and have obtain raw and Rasch scores for 15 items.  How does one construct a table for users so that they can look up the Rasch scores that correspond to the raw scores?
