Czech has postalveolars, not retroflexes. I do transliterate Czech texts with grave accents instead of carons, but this has no connection with X-SAMPA transcription, it is simpy because there is no caron in us-ascii nor in iso-8859-1 and the circonflex accent looks too big and ugly in most fonts, so the grave accent is the best replacement available.
