------- Comment #2 from cmsmcq@w3.org  2008-05-30 04:05 -------
I believe the premise of the comment is faulty:  there is a single-character
escape for "-" which can be used whenever "-" itself must be denoted,
whether inside a character-class expression or outside it.  Consistency
and clarity need to be weighed, sometimes against each other.  

So I believe the correct resolution of this issue is as WORKSFORME.
