Use of ValueType characteristic in BCS - redundant?

At a former client they had "ValueType" (from R/3) characteristic in the BCS DataBasis.

It seems redundant to me when version allows differentiation between actual and plan.

I didn't have time to investigate the mapping from R/3 before moving on to another project but surely ValueType maps to version, so you only need version in BCS.

Can anyone think of a reason to include ValueType in the BCS databasis?

    IMHO it is not necessary in the BCS databasis but is often in the source data basis and mapped in load from datastream method.
