Why?  What's wrong with storing UTF-16 encoded data in a 32 bit wchar_t?  I
know it uses more storage space; but there won't typically be that much
data around in this format at once.

I'd much rather have the format defined to be wstring (or wchar_t*, if you
must, but that's another debate), because of the compatibility with wide
string literals.
