Also, from an ergonomic point of view putting the separator on a shifted key is irritating in an otherwise case-agnostic filesystem. I believe in some keyboards it actually is on an AltGr key, which is even worse.

For us using non-US keyboard yes. Annoying. Of course in murika that was not such an issue.

For similar reasons I used to opt for UNIX-layout on Sun keyboards even here in the old world. It was easy enough to get the odd characters required on this side of the pond using Compose key anyway.
