Is it the intent of this PEP to support such data structures, and allow the user to fill in a Unicode object, and then the processing is automatic?
No, the point of the data-format object is to communicate information about data-formats not to encode or decode anything.
Well, there's still the issue of how much detail you want to be able to convey, so I think the question is valid. Is the encoding of a Unicode string something we want to be able to communicate via this mechanism, or is that outside its scope?
