> f'\\N{AMPERSAND}': reading a local variable looks like a typo or a security vulnerability, rather than a nice feature.

This can look as a typo, but how would you write this if this is not a typo? f'\\N{AMPERSAND}' is legitimate syntax, and it would be weird to interpret this expression in any other way than as '\\' + 'N' + format(AMPERSAND).

> What is the issue with having to write "\\{10}" to get "\\10" string? It's less error prone.

There is no issue with f'\\{10}'. There is an issue with f'\{10}'.
