No. If we strike the "except", we give the impression that a spliced character
sequence in a raw string literal that looks like a UCN is somehow special,
and would cause undefined behavior. It doesn't.

(Note that it says "that matches the syntax". Although UCNs are never
formed in raw string literals, the phrasing could be read to actually
care for UCNs in raw string literals. Not good.)
