This is exactly what I did in my Wikipedia mode before escaping was
added to Emacs.  And I'm too unsatisfied with escaping, so after it
appeared, I made `show-nonbreak-escape' locally set to nil in all my
buffers and kept the custom highlighting.

I think `show-nonbreak-escape' should be nil by default.  However,
this has been discussed already and RMS will probably not be willing
to change it.
