Hey hey,

What happened to the ByteString idea from
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2012JanMar/1304.html
and onwards. Especially for XMLHttpRequest this would make it much
more clear that there is some bridge that needs to be crossed between
HTTP and JavaScript.

I guess a potential downside is that people might misuse it in
contexts where it would not be appropriate and where you should use an
actual byte representation of sorts instead.

Cheers,
