I was rather thinking about 'varout' (or so) parameter type, which was suggested already several 
times in the past.
Extending Initialize is a) different from Delphi (Delphi ignores initialize(unmanaged_type)), b) 
does not affect already existing code, c) not applicable to all cases where FillChar is used (e.g. 
FillChar(x, sizeof(foo)+n*sizeof(bar))
