Right. But the problem is some OpenID libraries seem to be  
"normalizing" /damian to /damian/ and some web servers would actually  
treat the two as equivalent (by always redirecting to the trailing  
slash version).

So I think what we're trying to figure out is what to say in the spec  
so that it's very clear what an OpenID library should do with those  
two URLs.
