  1. Ship it!

    Maybe worth to add this to the definition list of 'Baseline unicode control chars' in eficon.h:

    #define CHAR_ESCAPE            0x001B
    

    At least with the usage of this preprocessor macro you don't have to comment everywhere the meaning of 0x1b magic number.

    1. It is tempting, but those headers are coming from edk2 and I would rather avoid changing them too much.

  2.
