Request from Aymeric to make it able to transfer signals that can be
distinguished from ordinary byte stream.

For example, we can have TextDecoder understand such a signal. When TextDecoder
sees a signal, it flushes decodable bytes preceding the signal in its buffer as
a DOMString while keeping non-decodable bytes in the buffer.

His use case is making hash calculator to emit partial hash when received such
a signal.
