Have you tried? The Finder (and other GUI tools) will happily allow  

(But when you look at the names in Terminal, you'll see that the  
slashes have been mapped to colons -- the GUI layer swaps the path- 
separator characters from Unix and classic Mac OS, to preserve the  
user experience Mac folks grew up with. So at the Unix level, that  
filename would include "28:09:2005".)
