That would perhaps be better, but none of the libiberty files does it that way.
They basically all use the simple method that I used, with small variations

void * instead of char *,
PTR instead of char *,
parameter list enclosed in PARAMS()

So, for the moment, I'd prefer to stick with my proposed change.
