But presumably not the ones that look like u8"\U1234" ?
Yes, there is no reason to disallow that as It can't be misinterpreted by neither the compiler or people (and quite a lot of code would needlessly break)

\Uxxxx is unambiguous.
u8"é" is ambiguous. Both people and the compiler may interpret that in a variety of ways. Notably if I have utf-8 in that file, which I wrote on Linux, but then the msvc compiler thinks it's windows 1252...
People also seem to be confused
