Bjoern,

The working group has agreed the text in sections A.5 and A.6 of the SPARQL 
grammar section A in the editors' working draft [1] in response to your 
comment.  The grammar also includes productions to put such escape sequences 
in strings.

Please let us know whether this response addresses your comment
to your satisfaction.

	Andy
