  Technically speaking, the two URLs are not identical as the trailing slash
modifies the meaning of "name" in the URL.  RFC-3986 states that if the
former redirects to the latter, only then are the equivalent, otherwise, the
first refers to a resource (file) and the second to a directory (section


Thank you for this. I may want to pick a different name than "URL" or  adopt the official meaning, as you suggest. I'll have to read the specification, but I guess that means that I should technically error (probably 404?) if a slash is included and the target is a resource that is not a collection...
