Just to confirm.  Are these escapes case-sensitive or case-insensitive?

Good point, thanks for bringing this up.

The BNF, except where otherwise noted, is case-insensitive,
but this is meant to be one of those exceptions.  The syntax
is borrowed from R6RS where it's case-sensitive, and as far
as I know there is zero implementation support for the uppercase
versions of these escapes.

I've added the mnemonic escapes to the list of case-sensitive
exceptions to the BNF.
