The super string was intended to be something
familiar and easy to use for users.

The functional syntax is not common in C++,
immutability will be feared as inefficient
and the pipe syntax is completely novel.

Something as

  superstring s;

has a chance to be used in spite of having large API.

The problematic operations as German ß -> SS -> ss
can be handled without problem in this model.
