I believe we should have separate names for JSON represented as a 
sequence of characters (such as in a string variable in a programming 
language) and for a JSON-shaped octet sequence inside a 
"application/json"-typed (HTTP) message. For the latter, enforcing UTF-8 
IMHO is attractive.

I think it's ok for the spec to talk about both, but it really needs to 
be clear what we are talking about in each section.
