Add an Option to set default values for column types like VARCHAR. WB always sets VARCHAR to length of 45 by default - this will not be everybodys 1st choice.

How to repeat:
add a varchar column to a table without specifying length in brackets -> wb sets the length to 45

Suggested fix:
add an option to the Model Section where already some datatype defaults are stored (like using INT for PKs)
