Indeed.  Report those things as bugs.

Indeed, because C-; is not a character (contrary to C-a and a few other
such special cases) so you can't put it in a string.
Instead use the form [(control ?\;)].

In your code above it should work just fine since it's inside a string.
When it's not inside a string use \ as I did above.
