I have tried to fix a legacy programming practic:using of a ASCIZ instead of ASCIC
and something like it represetntation of the ASCII string.

Yes. It will allow to use printf's specification like %.*s for example, it allow to
help formating output w/o overhead caused by using strlen() for computing of a string

It need to add length for an every string parameter and it's all.
