--- Comment #1 from Boris Zbarsky <bzbarsky@mit.edu> ---
I would actually prefer a distinct type for ByteString.  On the C++ side,
ByteString needs to become some version of char*, while DOMString becomes a
Unicode string.  These are typically different C++ classes, not just different
conversion code.  And while it's possible to change the actual type of the
object based on extended attributes, it feels pretty weird.
