Quite the reverse.  I think it's dangerous to fiddle just now, because
there is only a matter of days before 6.6 is fixed.  But after 6.6 we
can review the data types and change them if there's a consensus.  The
exact design isn't something about which I feel strongly, apart from the
principle in my previous message (avoiding gratuitous sugar)
