That sounds just fine to me.

Indeed, in separating the "Unicode text" nature from its encoding, I'm
fine with the *storage* being the encoding and the text being a view of
that storage - just as long as we get an API that lets us deal with
every form of storage (and encoding) consistently in terms of Unicode,
when the code accessing it wants to do that.
