How should bash interpret escapes in constructs like "`...`"?

The quoting rules for backticks are complex enough that the entire
construct has long been replaced with a completely different one.  I
strongly suggest that instead of struggling to get the backtick syntax
quoted satisfactorily that you use $(...) instead.  The rules there
are much more reasonable.

True, but... not really relevant. The original question deals with how kate should highlight this, ergo we need to know if the current behavior is intended. Using a syntax that doesn't confuse kate is a workaround, not a fix. (Also, if you'd read the bug report, you'd see I already suggested a work-around.)
