One answer would be to use the fact that since version 6.0 it has been 
possible to use graphics objects in expressions. The following 
represents A-slash + B:

   Graphics[{Text[Style["A", FontSize -> 14], {0, 0}],
     Text[Style["/", FontSize -> 14], {0, 0}]}, ImageSize -> 20],
   ASlash] + B

The interpretation box ensures that the kernel 'sees' a symbol 
corresponding to A-slash.

Unfortunately you would need to adjust the font size to suit the size of 
the surrounding font.
