[SAC] Should parser resolve Unicode quoting?

Hello,

given this stylesheet:

.footnote\002e reference { vertical-align: super }

what is the selector's AttributeCondition.getValue() method expected to
return,

    "footnote\002e reference"
 or 
    "footnote.reference"?

Flute 1.3 returns the former, i.e. it seems not to unquote the value.
However, I would expect the parser to resolve the Unicode quote,
especially since there is no utility method to have the unquoting done in
SAC. Or have I missed something?

Regards, Christian.
