You are basically right with your "many discussions without any 
conclusions", but the code page aware string IS implemented and in a 
seperate branch the RTL is prepared to handle that (and UnicodeString) 
correctly. So that in the future at least from a technical point nothing 
would stop us from switching the default string type to UnicodeString 
(that it won't be that easy practically is a different topic...).
