Messages without any body or with an empty body seem to

Subject: Re: Here is the document/thank you/AL//

Subject: Re: Meeting 1 September/sorry, I cannot come/JS#

Are there any commonly agreed conventions about this, such as
using "/" as in the example above, or putting "#" at the end
of a subject to indicate that no body is included.

I don't think so.  I've seen lots of <EOM> or EOM or eom instead of
#, and | or - for line breaks.
