Sorry, but IMHO freezing the current (supposedly DXE compatible) state 
does not make much sense.

To decently support creating fully portable applications for multiple 
OSes, "TStrings" and its siblings (e.g. TStringlist") needs do be 
implemented in a way not forcing a fixed encoding to store the 
information in and thus force time consuming convention when storing and 
retrieving strings in any different encoding.
