Actually it's the other way around:  what WG2 voted for was "homogenous
numeric arrays", without specifying how they would be implemented.
See http://tinyurl.com/wg2-ballot .  BlobAPI is a proposal that would
handle both that and R6RS-style bytevector accessors and mutators using
the same machinery.
