Why not but why to change.
Is there some technical reason to follow the ASCII control codes in
this binary protocol?

Maybe i should have called them S_OK and S_BAD, or S_YES and S_NO, or

They are just two values used to represent success/failure in command
execution - i dont really care much of their numerical values.
