OK, so let's make it...:


     quoted-text    = %d1-9 |     ; Characters excluding NUL, CR and LF
                      %d11-d12 |
                      %d14-127

     quoted-pair    = "\" quoted-text



Best regards, Julian


PS.: I'm a bit nervous to start making changes to the ABNF before our 
ABNF transition plan is in place. But maybe that's not a problem as long 
as we can always generate the collected BNF for all previous drafts?
