I notice more and more small SMT inductors data sheets asking for C shaped pads. 
 
I would prefer to use rectangular pads even though Cadstar if not PCB Libraries and IPC standard can indeed support Polygon Pads. 
 
Is there any unanticipated problem I am going to encounter by replacing the two C shapes as called out in the data sheet with Rectangles?

Can you please post a web-link to a component package datasheet that has "C-shape" leads or a mfr. recommended pattern the calls for "C-shape" pads?
 
We would really appreciate it and it's the only way we can support it.
 
It it exists, we can do it.
