On 2004-02-16, Shiro Yamada posted a very thorough review of those
issues on this list.  Did you see that?

He covered CP932 (Japanese), UHC (Korean), GB18030 (Simplified
Chinese) and Big5 (Traditional Chinese).  He says, that "/" is not
used by any of these, but "\" is used as a trail byte in CP932,
GB18030 and Big5.
