It would certainly be advantageous if the special characters, which must not be used with BitTorrent in conjunction with I2P, were added to the client as a short description. According to zzz, these illegal characters are found in: line 817.

These chars aren't illegal in bittorrent. However they may be illegal for file names, but that's OS and filesystem dependent. Snark clients will transparently map them to legal chars, and/or escape them in the UI. There's no reason to prohibit them. And the proposal is only about the top-level filename anyway, whereas file naming rules would have to be imposed thought the entire tree.
