[jax-rs-spec users] [jsr339-experts] Why do we need special encodeSlashInPath methods again?

  Wouldn't changing resolveTempalte() and build() methods to state that
'/' is not encoded and you must encode it manually work just as well?
Or is it a backward compatibility issue?

We have to provide a way for people to specify path params without
encoding the '/', but it just seems silly to have a special method for
this case.
