I don't use DTF. I use the native dutil/wcautil WiX libraries to help me
write custom actions and I have to make the replacements myself... :-(

Perhaps it would be a nice feature request for WiX to provide native and
managed APIs that allow us to LogUnformatted. At least then the
implementation for escaping square brackets is contained in one project...
