#935 — 11.1.3, 11.1.9, 15.5.*: elements of a string

Mostly, the spec uses "element" to refer to the items in a List (or an Array).
Although 8.4 extends this usage to Strings, I think things would be somewhat clearer if it didn't.

Uses of "element" in relation to Strings seem to be mostly in phrases roughly of the form
... the string whose elements are ...
which could be changed to
... the string whose code units are ...
or just
... the string consisting of ...

(The full pattern is more like /(a|the) [Ss]tring( value)? whose elements are/.)
