That I indeed got wrong. I had understood that there were reasons *not* to want that extra
slash, because of unwanted interpretation of semantics of http://psi.oasis-open.org/iso/.
See below.

It seems to me that after several back-and-forth, we decided to keep NOR. Lars Marius?

Agreed. But using the directory URLs for that purpose seems confusing.

Yes. And I thought we had a sort of agreement that it should become a general recommended

I buy that. As simple and explicit as can be.

OK to get rid of it in the minutes, since it was not really discussed. But the need to
settle it was evoked briefly. If we set as a general practice that in a "psi namespace",
any URL could be used as a PSI, it is likely that some will use the top URL itself. So
