Boris, do you see value in the asBlob / responseBlob proposal currently in  
the draft? Maybe we should keep that for very large responses. For the  
other scenarios it is probably fine to have both a octet and string  
representation in memory (although you could optimize for the non-string  
scenario as detailed in this thread; I suppose you could even optimize for  
the non-octet case by having some kind of special string type).
