[Scheme-reports] Ticket #214 "string/symbol escape sequence confusing"

Can non-committee member can get an account to comment on tickets,
or is that intended for the committee only?

For example, with respect to:  http://trac.sacrideo.us/wg/ticket/214 says:

   Using "\xX...;" as escape sequence is suboptimal, as it confuses
   syntax highlighters. I also have no knowledge of any precedent
   of this syntax. Also: how is this sequence handled inside "|...|"?

My comment would be:
   The precedent is R6RS.
   Existing implementations, including Kawa, implement this syntax.
   A change in this would be pointless churn - no action is needed.
