The "push" model is also used for USB, parallel, and serial
printing, and the current print devices seem to have no problem
with flow control over these or network interfaces.  It might
mean that customers will see slower printing with UTF-16 data,
but between the spec and any documentation you provide to
developers and customers, it shouldn't surprise anyone...
