I have a question on the formation of RDF terms:

For a given RDF term x, can it be assumed that for every character following
the last # (or if none exists, the last /) is the name and the rest is the
namespace?

Example:

 http://example.webns.net/term/fries/smelly
    Namespace: http://example.webns.net/term/fries/
    Term: smelly

 http://example.webns.net/term/fries#smelly
    Namespace: http://example.webns.net/term/fries#
    Term: smelly

Is this correct? (This would mean that no RDF terms could include a / or a
#, right?)
