In this case, the 'kind' does not specify how large the data-type is. You can have 'u1', 'u2', 'u4', etc.
The same is true with Unicode. You can have 10-character unicode elements, 20-character, etc. But, we have to be clear about what a "character" is in the data-format.
That is certainly confusing. In u1, u2, u4, the digit seems to indicate the size of a single value (1 byte, 2 bytes, 4 bytes). Right? Yet, in U20, it does *not* indicate the size of a single value but of an array? And then, it's not the size, but the number of elements?
