It looks like it happens only when you export as Unicode -- I suggest you log a bug. it looks like it happens in CS5 also. Can you export as ASCII instead? That encodes all the Unicode, although it makes processing a bit more difficult...
Wow, I found a bug... Where do I report it?
Yes, I was exporting the tags as unicode, remembering Adobe's "everything is unicode in CS4"... It's really too bad they don't have any testers in their programming department.
What processing problems do you foresee if I simply change the export pref to ASCII? I manually placed the exported ASCII tags and all of the upper-ASCII characters came back in fine. I will have to test the scripted import later.

The ASCII export still includes non-ASCII characters OK, but exports them encoded like <0x2019>. This is painful if you intend to do much processing of the exported files, but otherwise works fine.
Another possibility is to precede the export with a find/change that inserts some tag, and reverse the process on the exported file. It could be done as a single script, so it wouldn't be particularly onerous to use.
But post that bug first...
OK, bug filed. I also tested the import and it works fine. Basically, all I did was change the export pref to ASCII. Fortunately, no further processing was needed in this case.
