Now this proposal has some good things going for it.
First it's simple. Second it matches UTF-8's length
of 1 for ASCII characters, but then it exceeds UTF-8
by allowing representation of up to U+3FFF with just
2 bytes, and all of Unicode in at most 3 bytes. The
only place that UTF-16 wins is in the range U+4000
to U+FFFF (2 bytes instead of 3), but it loses for
all other characters.
