I'm wondering why keeping this heading slash, it seems unnecessary, and
yet another thing that translators have to take care of.  Perhaps it
would be not difficult to make sure to keep only the trailing slash,
without keeping the heading slash? (and just a slash when no path is to
be looked up).

I don't think compiling stuff would be problematic, since it'd just open
files. It's more corner cases which may pose problems (opening stuff in
httpfs and whatnot).
