Description of problem:
At present e.g. --content-string xyz will be sent as a Data section (i.e. binary) as the test utility sets the actual message bytes. It would be preferable to send it as utf8 data (i.e. an AmqpValue section of type string).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. send a text message with some content using qpid-send
2. receive the message using proton-j messenger client
3. byte message content displayed instead of string
message content sent as Data section
message content sent as utf8 data
