I'm pretty sure I'm doing the right thing here:
- the last path component [1]
- ignore trailing slashes [2]

I'd prefer to minimize the the number of rules that are applied to
what can be valid within a tag and assume that the tagspace itself
defines this, which lets the future be not unnecessarily be

Personally, but not off topic, when I create web pages I prefer never
to show the extension for HTML content, roughly inspired by this [3]
