[Scheme-reports] Formal Response #360: Change syntax of escaped symbols from |...| to #"..."

This is a Formal Response to Formal Comment #360:

Change syntax of [escaped] symbols from |<symbol element>*| to #"<string

The editors rejected this request on the grounds that there is no
existing implementation experience with it.  R6RS and CL provide for
vertical and backslash escapes.

If you are dissatisfied with this Formal Response, please let us know.
Thank you for participating in the R7RS process.
