In the following code the cases 400 and 200 can't happen, because they are
ouside the values range of char and byte. I suggest to raise a warning in such
cases (this compiles with no errors on DMD 2.053):

void main() {
    char c;
    switch (c) {
        case 'a': break;
        case 400: break;
    byte x;
    switch (x) {
        case 10: break;
        case 200: break;

See here for real world bug cases:

This too generates no errors, but I think this is less often a bug:

void main() {
    char c;
    if (c == 400) {}
