It seems strange to need to force the more basic
behaviour of an unconstrainted array of chars with
zero cost for establishing the bounds, and default to
higher level behaviour implying a delimiter and a
linear cost to calculate the bounds.

Some of this depends on what you perceive as the
common case, but the differing behaviour between
char[N] and MyType[N] presents a lack of uniformity
that could hurt generic code developers and confuse
