It may be that the problem would be that the parameter passing would be expecting a string of Unicode characters to be passed.
Passing b64-encoded binary data could be ambiguous as to whether it was text or b64-encoded binary data.
The suggestion of using b64-encoded binary data could perhaps be adapted by placing a Unicode U+FFFC OBJECT REPLACEMENT CHARACTER in front of the b64-encoded binary data. That way, the parameter passing would always be in Unicode characters and the presence of a U+FFFC character would indicate that subsequent characters in the parameter should be interpreted as b64-encoded binary data.
