APM RUM Click events - Transaction Names

Kibana version: 7.5.2

Elasticsearch version: 7.5.2

APM Server version: 7.5.2

APM Agent language and version: APM RUM Angular 0.4.3
I wanted to report some feedback on the recent update of capturing user interaction click events. These events are getting reported with the transaction names as

Click >> button
Click >> mat-card-content

Having the >> in the "CLICK >>" prefix of the event APM logging impacts both the ability to search for it and the display on Kibana visualizations (screenshot below). As "<>" are reserved characters in Elasticsearch.


Probably need to avoid using these arrow characters as part of transaction names? Or is there any workaround that we can implement?
