I think you may have misunderstood my framing of the question. I don't
want to have a philosophical debate; I'm saying, that we're _already_ in
elephant-land, in that different parties are coming with their own
implicit, fuzzy ideas of what a string literal is (or is supposed to
be). And by making the potential assumptions explicit, we have a better
chance of getting past arguments that involve things like "but an
elephant is like a tree."
