We can't use a union type of `DOMString or USVString` because they are both string types and union types must be [distinguishable](https://heycam.github.io/webidl/#dfn-distinguishable).

But we can typedef to only `USVString` and say in prose that it is conforming to use `DOMString` instead (or vice versa).
