I remember bringing this up several times before, but memory is failing 
me why we do it.
I think we are doing it for backward compatibility with WD10, which 
doesn't have the leading slash in the Path element content (presumably 
for user-friendliness.)

I agree with Gabe that the brain has to work harder to see an invisible 
slash in the Path content of the second column (XRD Path Element). It 
would be much easier to compare column 1 and 2 without having to perform 
that extra mental step. That said, a lot of the scenarios are probably 
too obscure to be used. However, XDI might have different requirements.

I just went through section 12 yesterday, and will be posting my 
comments (including some related to this issue) in the following email.
