That seems to be the case.
However, the context of format() allows such a literal. There might be
other contexts that allow it, but I don't know what they are.
If and when constant expressions are evaluated and simplified at
compile time, then maybe this will be allowed:
constant commandString = format("\%s -b -v -xyz \\\"\%s\\\"")
That looks a little ugly, though.
