ISSUE-6: mapping of enumerated values containing non-alphanumerics


Raised by: Paul Downey
On product: Roadmap

Another issue related to enumerations that I would like to see the group
consider is how to map enumerations that contain non alpha-numeric
characters.  For example, I have seen schemas that contain enumerations of
things like #, @, $, etc. in various combinations.  The typical response by
many binding tools is to replace these characters with underscores (_) which
leads to some very cryptic and confusing names.  If the group could come up
with some standard way of dealing with this situation, it would be great.
