Bjoern Hoehrmann points out that the SPARQL QL spec doesn't say that
query strings are composed of unicode characters.

I thought we did, but double-checking, I see that our
grammar gives gives the productions and the start symbol, but
not the alphabet.

"A SPARQL query string is a sequence of characters in the language
defined by the following grammar, starting with the Query production."
 -- http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/rq23/#grammar

I suggest 

 A SPARQL query string is a character string (cf section
 6.1 String concepts of [CHARMOD]) in the language defined by
 the following grammar, starting with the Query production.

where [charmod] links to a new normative reference:

<dt>
<a name="CHARMOD" id="CHARMOD">CHARMOD</a>
</dt>
<dd>
