That would certainly help people who have setup their databases
incorrectly, but it is actually legal to have a setup like this as long as
you only use seven bit ascii characters. I'm not sure where I stand on
this. There are probably plenty of databases that are working fine with
the current setup. For example even using 8 bit chars in a SQL_ASCII
database, if all clients are unicode then the only problem you'll see is
the length check in something like varchar(100) failing.
