My point was that I cannot use that in a real-world scenario. With "real-world scenario" I mean normal columns that do not contain only one character. I cannot search for only 0xC2A0 in a real-world search. That won't find me anything.
LIKE '%whatever%' is a real-world search. You can't do it with 0x characters.
You can workaround by using REGEXP. Instead of LIKE you can use
WHERE col REGEXP char(0x00a9)
But you can use it only for searching one char. That defeats the purpose of REGEXP.
