Ok, I am not against your proposal, but I agree with Gunnar
that you can announce your patch and find users that would like it.
But, I don't feel the need of it.
As a C programmer, I agree with you. I really like to receive a
pointer to a memory position and have the freedom to choose how to
handle that set of bytes. I´m not joking.
But C also offers a more controlled way to handle data with types and
"function propotypes" while maintaining the classical way too. IMO, it
does that to help the programmers, not to "imprision" them. The OOBit
patch has the same intent: help.
