Closed as "INVALID".  People can write image handling libraries, but
let's not introduce such a thing a feature at a time.

The Working Groups considered the original request, and today considered your
clarification.  We don't feel at this time that the work needed to expand
handling of binary data is justified, particularly as we don't have clear
use cases or examples.  But if you end up developing such a library and
it proves popular, it would quite likely be a candidate for standardisation
in some future version of Functions and operators.

The unparsed-text function is another matter, and we'll track that separately.
