But presumably this doesn't happen in XMPP clients and the like, which
do UTF-8 correctly? If this is just Windows being stupid and using UTF-
16, I don't think it's something we should bother with.

Then again, this isn't something that needs to be specified and since
we're not sure maybe it's worth just not mentioning it. If people
want to develop toolbars that use this technique or something, they
still can.
