I can't claim that this was an ingenious design decision back then as  
it is too long ago to remember for sure. But in retrospect I feel what  
you describe here offers users a choice of how to treat a single char.  
Either as a tiny integer (CHAR) or as a one-byte text [CHAR(1)]. It is  
probably best to keep this behaviour.
