This has no effect on its use in practice; it just means that you can write things like U+0000000 (7 digits) that weren't previously allowed.

That's implicit in the fact that I'm using the V&U grammar - the "u"
there denotes an ident, and is implicitly ASCII case-insensitive since
it's a language-defined ident.
