... what do you mean?

In general, of course it can be broken by
setting the variable to something that isn't
consistent with the human/computer notion of
what is a filename.

Specifically, the present value is already
broken with respect to these filenames, for
example:

    $ cd /lib/systemd/system
    $ ls | grep @
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
    address@hidden
