I also use bash and variables in my scripts and everything is working 
fine. I simply use variable="contents of the variable" and then in rrd 
call $variable. I don't even escape that like you do. Although, I'm not 
that familiar with bash scripting fundamentals.

And as for the comments I use similar lines. Like so: 
generated="Generated $date"
COMMENT:"$generated \\c" \

the \\c just centers the comment line horizontally.
