This is exactly what I wanted to show: it results in ContentPointer, 
StringLength, ReferenceCount (plus - if no auto-conversion is done - 
supposedly EncodingType and ElementSize in DXE) being identical for both 
strings after the assignment. Thus a RawByteString supposedly will in 
fact get the source's encoding type).

(see my mail to Sven).
