I think than breaking O(1) expectation for indexing makes the implementation significant incompatible with Python. Virtually all string operations in Python operates with indices.
I don't use indexing on strings except in rare situations. Sure I use lots of operations that may well use indexing *internally* but that's the point. MicroPython can optimise those operations without needing to guarantee O(1) indexing, and I'd be fine with that.
