Isn't UNICODE a bit to broad a name here? Wouldn't STR_UTF8 be a better
name as there are different unicode encodings around?

Well I'd rather avoid using any unicode encoding name here, because some people can think: 
  "Hey, I'm using UTF-8, so I just put STR_UTF8 here", or
  "Hey, my protocol is using UCS-2, so why I need to put STR_UTF8 here?"

STR_UNICODE is broad, which is good.
