Now also a comment:

One point arising is the use of "/" as the path follow symbol.  N3 uses 
"!" (after UUCP) and the design note

where it is noted that N3 might acquire expression syntax so reserving + 
- * / makes sense.

* and + are already used in property paths.

To add expressions in patterns to SPARQL, it would take some kind of 
expression marker like `` or ?(?x+?y) (c.f. shell syntax).

To me "!" suggests "not".  "/" builds on file paths and paths in HTTP URIs.
