It does, and this url is normalized:

The fact that a web server might decide it
is a directory, and redirect you to the following
doesn't mean it's not normalized :)

I don't know how conditioned people are to
type trailing slahses after urls without file
extensions, but maybe Drummond is right
and we should treat the two as equivalent.
