I just wanted to show one example of a URI where the semicolon is used.

>",", for example.

Yes, only that a dot is quite common in JCR paths. A comma might be
acceptable, but I personally prefer semicolon. Anyway, if we want to use
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-pbryan-zyp-json-pointer-02 as the
specification for a path, then quite many characters would have to be
escaped unfortunately. I guess the escaping would only be required in the
getNodes(..) call, not in the JSOP / JSON Patch / returned JSON.

>You could make it "?hash&index".

That's true. But ";hash;index" is easier in my view (you only need one
character: ";", which you need two characters when using the "?" and "&").

Too bad. Of course you are free to say you don't think it's a good idea,
but it doesn't help much if you have no alternative solution for the given

The JSON Pointer specification
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-pbryan-zyp-json-pointer-02 actually
already refers to RFC 3986, that means the "/foo;hash" would be OK I guess
(syntactically). But semantically it wouldn't be clear that it refers to
the same entity as "/foo".
