Allow slashes in MXIDs
Because apparently we like slashes now.
Move the MXID spec to the appendices
Also link to them from the /register API doc.

For the record, https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mQxZT8lcj7FbkXArsiGmYOwxgUAQuSC01Jlbo_hIgIg/edit#heading=h.bzbbma838s0p gives the (probably misguided) rationale for allowing slashes:

  • they are a useful namespacing character in various protocols.
  • we've allowed them for a while and various bridges depend on them.
  • the ship has somewhat sailed on being able to avoid escaping mxids in URLs, and anyone silly enough to do so is probably beyond help anyway.
