I have customized my Emacsen long ago to show /, \, and : instead.
Never looked back, and I will certainly keep those customizations if
your suggestion is accepted as the default.

The current indicators are shown only if the EOL format is _not_ the
native one on the underlying platform.  That was done a long time ago,
to draw users' attention to the fact that the file has unusual line
endings.  I think the need to draw attention to that has passed.  But
that's me.
