Because text is a special case of binary. If the library
supports streambufs, and when it would support the concept
of 'message blocks', then "text" just means that you'd
detect End-Of-Line sequences and cut the stream into
messages that are in fact lines of text.
Actually putting that text in a std::string and doing
some work on it should be in user code imho.
