            Bug ID: 22691
           Summary: Remove ByteString from WebIDL
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebIDL
          Assignee: cam@mcc.id.au
          Reporter: w3-bugs@norbertlindenberg.com

The ByteString interface was added to Web IDL in order to make it easier to
explain legacy behavior in XMLHttpRequest. I'd like to ask that it be removed
because this legacy behavior is not a good model for new APIs, but having
ByteString in Web IDL may lead API designers to adopt this model. The legacy
behavior in XMLHttpRequest can be explained in the XMLHttpRequest
specification.
