>Perhaps, I think if there is a usecase for codepoints-to-string at all then
probably there is a usecase for it allowing *all* code points, including 0.

I think I argued at one time that 0 should be allowed in the string data type
even though it is not allowed in text and attribute nodes. But apparently there
are some people still coding in an old 1960s language called C which has
trouble with the concept of 0 as a character, and they objected.
