Ok, I wasn't sure what you were talking about. Directories should use "<dir>/"
and files should use <file> without anything after it. Yes, this is done for

For Content Negotiation
A list of all the legal completions to the filename given is created. Then
the server decides which file to actually serve based on the way it's configured
and information sent by the browser. <file>.html is the default backup if
no language can be negotiated. That is why there is a link from
<file>.html -> <file>.html.en for all the pages. For some reason, if <file>.html
is used as the URL then it is served regardless of any language preferences set.
Thus the .html should be left off.
