http://foo.bar.com/ (note trailing slash), surely?
An empty path portion in an HTTP URL has no meaning, since it's 
impossible to request that from an HTTP server per the protocol.

(yes, I'm being a pedant, but this serves to show that "it's not as 
simple as that" and that the rules need to be written down somewhere so 
that everyone does the same thing.)
