We might be conflating URLs with file paths.

We have this pattern elsewhere on the w3.org site. For example, is http://www.w3.org/community/openannotation/ a directory or a file? It has content, so it looks like a file, but we also have content for http://www.w3.org/community/openannotation/wiki/Main_Page, which would make the first URI look like a directory.
