This page (and perhaps actual practice) is inconsistent in suggesting:

* slashes: name=L'Alguer/Alghero (New Zealand, Portugal, Sardinia)
* spaced hyphens: name=Rue du Marché aux Poulets - Kiekenmarkt (Belgium, Spain)
* spaces: name=干諾道中 Connaught Road Central (Hong Kong)
* spaced slashes: name=Le Rhin / Rhein (shared boundaries)

Greater consistency would surely be advantageous?
