[IDEA]: Upgrade String - or introduce data type - to better handle binary data.

With recent ECMAScript taking off outside the browser (not to point at any
one implementation, but http://nodejs.org/ is an example), the handling of
large arbitrary amounts of text and binary data, is becoming more and more
common.

Would it be fair to make sure that future ECMAScript implementation's can
handle these type of operations at a specification level, or would it boil
down to preference of the VM implementer?

Just a couple of thoughts, from a user of ECMAScript outside browser-land.
