Hey hey,

What happened to the ByteString idea from
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.
