      Description

      DROP TABLE IF EXISTS t1;
      CREATE TABLE t1 (f1 enum('1','2','3','4','5')) ENGINE=MyISAM;
      INSERT INTO t1 VALUES (1),(2);
      DROP TABLE IF EXISTS t2;
      CREATE TABLE t2 AS SELECT AVG(f1),AVG(COALESCE(f1)) FROM t1;
      SHOW CREATE TABLE t2;
      

      returns

      +-------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
      | Table | Create Table                                                                                                                                |
      +-------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
      | t2    | CREATE TABLE `t2` (
        `AVG(f1)` decimal(5,4) DEFAULT NULL,
        `AVG(COALESCE(f1))` double DEFAULT NULL
      ) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 |

      Perhaps it should create columns of the same type.
      It's not clear what type it should be. ENUM is a special kind of string. But it has INT-alike behavior in some cases.
