I'm not a database administrator (I'm network admin) I have limited work
with mysql, I can do basic things, the only identifiers I am aware of 
are as I mentioned earlier, and, the fact you can not use periods for 
slashes in table/DB names, so my reading of it all, is that you could 
use @, but I was looking for experienced DB admins opinions since as @ 
also indicates user @ where for mysql privileges, I get the don't, but I 
don't get a don't because ...   So you could imagine my response from top 
level management when I say "no" and they ask "why not" :)
