We limit the lines length to 72 chars.

Some of the above commented checks would need to be moved here.

I agree that we could be smarter than forbidding both local and remote
seps in the names.
However, I'm not conviced we should use nametrans to allow the users to
fix the sep issues. Perhaps introducing two new configuration options
would be better. Something like:
convert_sep_to = ! # local sep becomes !
convert_sep_to = _ # remote sep becomes _
The sad news is that users will forget about this option and use
"wrongly converted" characters and make false positives. E.g., if the
user creates a remote folder name with !.
I think we must have correct checks once the names are converted.
