Agreed that if string serialization for `send()` is capable of passing
 Unicode characters cleanly, then there shouldn't be an issue with the
 meaning of characters changing over the wire.  The spec should state 
that strings are passed in a way that is Unicode-clean: either 
USVString or the equivalent.

If the document for the receiving context is rendered using a 
non-Unicode encoding, and it receives a Unicode string via 
Presentation API, it's up to the receiving user agent to figure out a 
way to convert it appropriately before inserting it as text into the 
DOM.  Nothing new here as this problem has to also be solved for 
WebSockets, etc.
