ECMAScript 4 had a ByteArray feature that the W3C WebApps WG wanted to use  
for XMLHttpRequest Level 2, to expose the raw response data and also to  
allow any entity body to be transmitted to the server the author could  
think of.

However, ByteArray is no longer there. HTML5 has a concept called  
CanvasPixelArray which is effectively a byte array and I suppose we could  
define something like that as well, but it seems nicer if we can just map  
it to something part of the ECMAScript.

Are there any plans for such a feature?

Kind regards,
