Hmmmm...  Not all of them. I guess what I meant in my imprecise way 
was to allow characters that would normally appear in the domain 
portion of a URL, which is what I usually use as a "hint" as to an 
appropriate intermap name.

I would only use the hyphen and underscore (which you did not list), 
but other admins may have a different view. All or none would be fine 
with me as long as the the legal ones were listed on the intermap docs page.
