I am not sure exactly what is your example, but you got its flaw right: n is not out of the blue, it was obtained by previously walking the string. And in that case, you have all freedom to express n as a more convenient entity than an index expressed in terms of chars. A pointer maybe, or a pair with both the char index and the octet offset.
