My web server (Apache, FWIW) issues a redirect with code 301 if the
trailing slash is omitted from a directory-level URL. Is it worth saying
[the URL] "will not be further processed by the consumer except to
follow HTTP redirects, so be sure..." [etc]
or is that pushing too much work onto the consumer?
