Well, actually, I could not find a description of future identifier format there, nore on pointers from there.
I found this:
   Roberto, is there any description of upcoming changes in Lua 5.2?
   There is no "official" roadmap :)
will following points for 5.2, but no word about ids.

So, from another discussion, I guess that plans may be to allow any char which ordinal is > 127 as identifier char. Is this right? In that case,
   π = 3.14
would be legal.
Imo, this is both the simplest and the handiest rule.
