Description

Section 3.3 Disposition Parameter: 'Filename' says

""" When the value contains path separator characters, all but the last segment SHOULD be ignored. This prevents unintentional overwriting of well-known file system location (such as "/etcpasswd"). """

However, "path separator characters" is not defined; should this be platform-specific, or should we nominate the characters in question? Either way, it needs to be more explicit.
