Yes, something like that. We'd need to say that the UCNs
are replaced by translation characters and then must still
satisfy the _identifier_ production (i.e. XID_Start, XID_Continue).

Can we express C++-meaningful whitespace using a UCN?
Wasn't there an idea somewhere that we maybe want a
double-width space as regular C++ whitespace?
