Your example shows just how accurate Widestring should be interpreted: 
It just only shows it is a two ore more byte  sequence to represend a 
single character. It doesn't say anything about the content or the use 
of a specific (meta) encoding like UCS2 or Unicode16.
If the discussion is about those two issues, you may have a point. Or 
two, because those are separate from a computer language point of view. 
The difference being: 1. compiles and 2. actually works.
What I mean to say is: if the specs aren't ready, you'll have a fair 
chance of being mislead by assuming things that are not there (yet).
