Escaped newline removes following whitespace?

Description

An escaped embedded newline, like:

    "asdadf \
    asdfadf"

in R6RS has the same meaning as "asdf asdfadf". It allows you to nicely indent strings that you need to line-break for width. I suggest that the production

   \ NEWLINE WHITESPACE*

within string literals be elided.
