I think the reason that I didn't include this reverse algorithm was because
there's only one correct way of converting a Unicode string into UTF-16 code
units (whereas going the other way you need to deal with illegal UTF-16
sequences so there were some different approaches we could have taken) so you
could probably just write a single line in your spec saying for example

  Let s be the DOMString that represents the sequence of code units resulting
  from encoding the sequence of Unicode characters t as UTF-16.

I guess I just want to avoid re-specifying the UTF-16 encoding algorithm.  But
if you think the above is not precise enough I guess I can add your suggested
text.
