[sc34wg3] TMQL path language slashes

I am implementing a TMQL path language parser for my Meronymy DBMS and found that the slashes ("/")  are not necessary from a Lexer's standpoint and could be removed from the language, only the first slash is needed to indicate a mode switch from expression to type filter imo. 

Two examples to clarify what I mean:

/ person / email
, could be 
/ person email

lmg / employee / association::employed-by / employer / *
, could be
lmg / employee association::employed-by employer *

Have a nice weekend all :)

Kind regards,
