Subject: Relocation of legacy text streams

I'm writing more detailing wording of my byte IO proposal:


I've found that the most logical way to allocate a section for it is to
move legacy text streams from 29 to 29.2 (and eventually to 29.3) and
put byte IO as 29.1.

Since I plan to work on Unicode streams too, my numbering plan is this:

29 Input/output
29.1 Byte streams (my proposal)
29.2 Unicode streams (to be proposed later)
29.3 Legacy text streams (<iostream> et al)
29.4 File system (<filesystem>)
29.5 C library files

Is this a good idea?
