[Koha] RFC: control character in a MARC record?

I've been helping someone debug a problem saving records from the
reservoir to their catalogue and it seems that one of their sources
has subtle errors in their data.  The source record contains some
control characters.  One of the MARC:: modules reacts badly to that
and crashes Koha.

Is there ever a reason to include a non-printing control character in
a MARC record and could/should Koha filter them all out?

Thanks for any pointers,
