[OSM-dev] Escaping characters in node/way tags

Currently node tags are stored in the OSM db as a string like this:
whereas way tags are stored in a separate table with 'k' and 'v' columns.
From this I'm concluding:
1. ';' in node keys/values should be escaped as \;
2. '=' in node keys/values should be escaped as \=
3. No escaping is necessary for way keys/values
Am I right?
