Subject: Spec references to the solidus character

Hi everyone,

In a few places, the DITA 1.2 spec refers to a "solidus" character. E.g.
"For references to non-topic elements within topics and non-topicref
elements within maps, the value of the @keyref attribute is a key name,
a solidus ("/"), and the ID of the target element."

I believe what is meant here is a "forward slash", not a solidus which
is a different character and doesn't work in file paths. 
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solidus_(punctuation)
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slash_(punctuation)

Is this a big enough problem to require an erratum to the spec?
