Apparently, all sorts of muck floats around the Internet.  When we did
HTTP/2 we were forced to accept that header field values (URLs in
particular) were a sequence of octets.  Those are often interpreted as
strings in various interesting ways.

I wouldn't *completely* discount the potential for the conversions
