Trailing Slash?

A friend and I were trying our hardest to figure out why he could
comment to LiveJournal (and in general, use his domain with LiveJournal
as the server/delegate) by logging in via OpenID via his domain, and I

We finally found out that I was missing a single / in the delegate URL.
(href="" instead of href="").

Is there a reason that this trailing slash is absolutely required?  And
why it (seeming unnecessarily :( ) causes so much grief?
