Well, it helps in situations like this

    This is a  paragraph with  some text to
    demonstrate  that  a  path  name   like
    should be split after backslashes.

which looks better with a break after the backslash:

This is sensible, and I agree replacing / with /@/ here is good. But changing
"and/or" to "and/@/or" is bad (one you
changed recently.) Splitting such short strings will make little difference to the
layout, and I would argue that placing
the "/or" at the start of a new line renders
the text less readable, not more.

So a / in any string less than, say, 12 characters
should be left alone.
