DELETE broken on _query

At some point I accidentally POST'd to /myindex/sometype/_query, and it created an item with an ID of "_query". I cannot delete it directly with DELETE /myindex/sometype/_query.

It seems to me that it's a bug to allow data to be POST'd to /myindex/sometype/_query but not DELETE'd.

Same for entry IDs containing a slash - they do not appear to be usable by including the slash in the URI. Using the NEST client, it seems an ID with an embedded / will end up getting the / encoded to %2F. But if you've already indexed an item with the / (by mapping a field to _id where the field contains a / literal) then want to go update it, that's a problem.
