As both getCppuType and UnoType operate on the static type, there is at 
least no technical reason not to replace that.  There might be the rare 
case where the former makes for easier reading and maintenance of the 
code, but at least in dbaccess/source/core/api/table.cxx, the list is 
already non-uniform anyway, mixing getCppuType, getBooleanCppuType, 
UnoType, so I'd just clean it up to consistently use UnoType.

There should be no gotchas other then the sequence of char vs. unsigned 
short issue.  At least, none come to mind.
