Well, that depends on whether you're going to make a special typlen value for *just* UTF-8, which would probably cost about the same. Or allow any type to have it's own Datum length function, which would be very expensive. Calling user-defined functions is not cheap. I don't think making a special typlen value just for a type that can store a single UTF-8 character is smart. I just can't see enough use to make it worth it.
