Well I am not sure. Reading EL spec and ECMA script I can't see any wording which will imply a must to escape or quote the variable in this case. I think the current usage is not forbidden anywhere. I tried to escape or quote the part of variable but it didn't work. The result was considered as String instance or I got ParserException.

No, my point was that if a bean is given a name it implies that this 
bean should be accessible via EL.

Right, the TCK test should be fixed to escape the name properly.
