An advantage of being strict is that it leaves room for us to extend the syntax
in future by assigning meanings to paths that are currently non-canonical. For
example, we might one day want to assign a meaning to the double-slash, as in
current discussions about svn:external. If we allow that now as being just a
sloppy equivalent of a single slash, then we shut that door.
