How to specify GroupID which includes & character?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

The UserTask's groups are mapped to AD Groups and there are some groups named with '&' character.

To use the same name assigned to usertask's group of any BPMN process ie. "FP & A", save the process and then open it back from the BPM Designer show only the blank page.
Actually the BPMN file saved with '&' (no escape) for the group setting and cause the above rendering issue. This is inconsistent with other fields (such as variable assignments etc).

Following error messages are displayed:
