      Description

      There are currently no restrictions on that characters that can be used for tenant names, metric names, or tag names. I propose that we introduce some reserved characters for use with internally created identifiers to ensure we avoid naming collisions with user-defined identifiers. I suggest that we make $ reserved and prepend it to system-generated ids. We would need to validate identifiers whenever metrics or tenants are created and whenever data points are inserted.
