The only reasonable use I've thought of for these characters is so
that you can directly refer to them *as characters*.  For example, if
I want to encode the termcap file in XML, it seems quite reasonable to
be able to refer to escape as .  In this case the lack of agreed
semantics is irrelevant: the XML document is defining the sematics.
