SQL Type of AsWKB()

The sql type of the AsWKB() function is MYSQL_TYPE_VAR_STRING in current versions of the dbms (4.1.15, 5.0.15). This causes serious problems in Connector/J as VAR_STRING is treated as a convertable string type rather than a binary type. Is MYSQL_TYPE_VAR_STRING intended as a binary type, or should this function return another type (eg BLOB)?
