It's under the header "Old/obsolete sections" and as mentioned above,  
that's "incomplete or wishful thinking". I didn't want to delete any  
existing content for now, but yes, what's mentioned there but not in  
the current Sections 1 to 3 is not going to happen. Well, there is an  
UCS4String type in the RTL (like in FPC 2.6.x), but it's just a  
dynamic array of 0..$10ffff and not part of the regular string handling.
