I think it is reasonable to require the character to be printable. e.g., we don't want Unicode BOM in there, either.


I'm in favour of setting aside one character for hierarchy purposes though, e.g. "/", even if it has no meaning today.

If / is reserved, then I suggest that U+2044 ⁄ and U+2215 ∕ should be forbidden. Otherwise one clever client will substitute ⁄ for / when uploading a script, and wen the types / into another client, that other client can't download the script.

Yes, I know visual similarity is a big issue. Dealing with all of it is not worth it. Dealing with just this little bit is, IMO.
