No, I think when string-to-unibyte was de-obsoleted the other one just
didn't come up, but I don't think there's a string objection.

While I'm here, I'd suggest that we turn string-make-*byte into obsolete
aliases for string-to-*byte (their specific behavior has always been
heuristic in nature, and we changed `insert` to implicitly do
string-to-*byte instead of string-make-*byte when needed, so it seems
natural to do that).
