I agree though that it is always annoying to have to guess what kind of string is needed. I do not think that we implement a clear policy on that. It would be nice to have one, so that we agree on what should be what.
From what I got from Georg's explanations, there's already a policy which is quite clear: std::string must only contain ASCII. Therefore any code using std::string in UTF-8 must be converted to use docstring instead.
