If the dot is still there, it is a mistake. I thought I had pulled it out. Will fix in the working copy today.
Apologies for the confusion.
...certainly not your fault, as far as SMTP and likely SPF are concerned the TLDs will survive it if they're excluded. The alternatives are unfortunately worse. We (= SPF) only forgot to nail it for the corner case <target-name> in the spec., elsewhere as in <domain-spec> it's already okay. Frank
