Similarly documenting: Font Loading's FontFace() constructor takes binary data,
and would copy.

These examples, and my own intuition, suggest that most functions with binary
data arguments are *consuming* those arguments, not sharing them, and so we
should default to copying (which is the safer default anyway) and require an
annotation to indicate that a reference is being held.
