Allen's point in this last bit of the thread is that we don't need to 
interfere with bits stuffed into code units today, so we shouldn't 
tomorrow when units become as wide as (or wider than) code points. GIGO, 
and equality is memcmp (if you mean == and ===).

Normalization happens to source upstream of the JS engine. Here I'll 
call on a designated Unicode hitter. ;-)
