With minor reservation, due only to the brevity of discussion not the
technical merit. I would cast a vote in favor of the proposed change.
It seems like a minimal risk (esp. as Lexmark appears to already use
8-bit values in some cases) and seems to be in the direction the IETF
is, in general, going.
