Thanks for reporting this. This escaping is an intentional workaround for security reasons (if I remember correctly) and we do not plan to change the current behavior.

If this should happen in MediaWiki, it will be considered as a bug. The text is over-escaped.

Nobody said that it is not a bug. :) It is a bug in our downstream code. We do not plan to fix this bug due to its maintenance costs.
