Well, that should *definitely* be mentioned in the spec, then.  None
of the examples cover this case, and by my reading, the text actually
explicitly contradicts it with its references to "the last segment of
the URL path".  (This was the case even before I started mucking with
the text this morning, although I've apparently made the situation
worse by bringing in the actual definition of a path segment from RFC
