True, I should have said unicode code points rather than characters. I believe the fundamentals is that strings should always be sequences of unicode code points, and shouldn't be conflated with byte arrays. The thorny issues of normalization, comparing, sorting, rendering combined characters and so on could be handled with libraries at a later stage.
