How about:

   To deflate a DOMString into a byte sequence means to create a
   sequence of bytes such the n-th byte of the sequence is equal to
   the low-order byte of the n-th code point in the original DOMString.

   To inflate a byte sequence into a DOMString means to create a
   DOMString such that the n-th codepoint has 0x00 as the high-order
   byte and the n-th byte of the byte sequence as the low-order byte.

Other than that looks ok, though I still worry about changing behavior 
here...
