Highly unlikely, since that would break most user-defined types in existence.

Doesn't seem like an amazingly good idea ... how would you know what you
were getting?

A more salient point is exactly what is JDBC going to *do* with data in
an unknown binary format?

You may have to fall back to providing a switch somewhere that says
whether or not to use binary I/O, with the understanding that it's only
safe to turn it on when all the queries use only supported types.
