I think that's a really bad idea.  It means that all but the most

OK, I now made a version with escaped text, like in pstricks, but with 
some latex language fixed.
patch is here:

However I will keep using the unescaped version for myself, since I just 
want dia to place the latex code at the right coordinates. But I can 
conceive, that it is better to escape for a release.

I don't know about either of these formats, but: Would it be "expensive"
to have two export filters, one with escaped text and one with unescaped?

That's possible, but I don't think it's a question of export, but of
diagram design.  After all, all the tex formats would want to do that
same, and you'd write you diagram with the escaping setting in mind.

I assume that it's not possible to give an option to an export filter.

It is not impossible, but it's currently a PITA to do it.  PNG export
(libart) has options, but I think it'd be as much work to add options to
another filter as to make a generic option system.
