The / chosen in the RFC 2317 examples is highly unfortunate, as '/' is not
part of the DNS alphabet, nor is '_'. If you read '-' everywhere for '/',
RFC 2317 is a fine document.

PowerDNS 2.9.19 overzealously refuses to answer queries for domains with a
'/' in them, in SVN this has been fixed already, as '/' is rather benign and
sees wide use.
