I thought Javascript had a UCS-2 understanding of Unicode strings. Has it managed to progress beyond that?

Steer them away from reinventing the wheel. If they use Java, use Java strings. If they're using GTK, use strings compatible with GTK. If they're writing JavaScript, use JavaScript strings. There's basically no system without Unicode strings or that they would be better off rewriting the wheel.
