The set of characters supported and the set of characters
supported within strings are not necessarily the same.
Implementations may not support #\null within strings, but
they must support the character.
If implementations must support the same range both string and character, it seems much simpler and have more consistency, IMHO. (of course it doesn't matter which range it follows.)
