I think you are practically correct. But according to the
documentation at least 'A' for all is an option. Also according to
the documentation the full words would appear to be valid as well
(up to 6 characters anyway).

So to cover possible "fixes" later, or direct metadata updates by
some external app, I would write my code to read a string and test
the first character and I would check for 'A'.
