Raw strings starting/ending with backtick

Reading the JEP on raw string literals, I saw no mentions of the case when
a string starts (or ends) with backtick. I guessed, that maybe the compiler
will close the literal when it finds more than half the number of backticks
than the beginning (nothing implied this behaviour just tried it and I know
that it might be very suprising in other cases). I have tried with the
latest early access compiler and (not too suprisingly) it didn't behave
this way and simply failed when starting the literal with a backtick.
My question is, of course: What is the strategy for this case? Or is it
explicitly ignored as too much of an edge case (and left to the developer
to deal with)?
