There's a mapping defined here:


But if you want a mapping that maps arbitrary strings to valid names
and the mapping must not lose information, then the mapping cannot leave
all valid names as is.  And if a mapping changes valid names, then it
shouldn't be done by the parser.  So I think such a mapping is better done
in a post-parsing process. This is easy to do if the parser leaves names as
