In general you are right. But we don't support newlines in file names;
at least Tramp doesn't, so it makes no difference using "^/:" or "\\`/:".

`string-prefix-p' is the best choice indeed, and I thought about, but
Tramp cannot apply it yet. It has been introduced in Emacs 24.1, and
Tramp still supports Emacs 23. Well, NEWS.24 says that it exists already
