They don't really.  So if the \r must be there, leave it in.  It's 
just that in general: the fewer control characters in a string, the 
better.  Less clutter, less room for error.

(What I'd really like to get rid off is the tab characters (\t), 
because they obscure the strings and hide the intended layout.  
It's better to always use spaces.  But that's a bit much to ask: 
there are about a 150 lines in the POT file that contain \t.)
