Sounds like a good high level concept, but I'd also suggest:

     - TextStyle and StringTruncator should go into platform/graphics
     - String, StringImpl, AtomicString, CString, RegularExpression,  
Base64, CharacterNames, and SegmentedString should go into platform/ 
text; also CharsetEntry, but into a mac subdirectory

It's OK if we don't move them all at once, but I think it would be  
good to move as many as is practical all at once.
