Ampersands in filenames

In 1.4 preview, I could create a document with an ampersand in its name. However, with 1.4rc1 I'm getting the following

Constraint: Value 'Communicate &amp;Consult' matches regular expression: .*[\"\*\\\>\<\?\/\:\|\xA3\xAC\%\&\+\;]+.*

Why is it that ampersands are no longer allowed in document names? Ideally I'd like documents with all allowable Windows based filenames as that's what my end users are comfortable with (and the several thousand documents with ampersands in their name already ;)).
