Exactly, yes. The DOM specification clearly says that the type
DOMString must correspond to some Unicode two-byte data type. By
putting plain strings into a DOM tree, we violate both the spirit of
XML and of DOM.

I expect updates to xmlproc to happen soon (perhaps this year) since
Lars is interested in supporting Unicode. I doubt anybody will change
sgmlop, or xmllib (which all operate on byte strings still).
