Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The algorithms in fact feed the parser string-by-string. Strings
consist of characters, so it is correct to say that characters are fed

It's like saying that you can only eat peas one pea at a time. That's clearly
wrong; You can spood-feed peas one spoon at a time, or spoon-feed a baby
milliliters of baby food one spoon at a time, even if the spoon is bigger than
one pea or one milliliter.
