    richard: wanted to ask a question
    ... "just an opaque identifer"

    addison: recommend they just say "string"?

    richard: what *sort* of string? byte string, escapes, etc.

    addison: probably they mean DOMString
    ... status of escapes the key thing
    ... comment too specific? can't tell what's happening
