There are escape sequences defined for six Unicode characters (&, <, >, LRM, RLM, and NBSP), but not a general purpose escape mechanism for characters. It's generally recommended that character escapes be provided so that difficult to enter or edit sequences can be introduced using a plain text editor. E.g. something like HTML's &#x123AB; syntax.
