Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: This is a known issue. The treatment of U+0000 as something other
than U+0000 is intentional as defence-in-depth against a variety of attacks
based on code that treats U+0000 as a string terminator. As such, unless it
breaks a significant number of pages, I think we're better off with this
behaviour, even if it does affect a few pages in the meantime.
