Since this isn't obvious, there should be a test case for both (with

But what are the chances of an implementation throwing PermError on
"a:museum" but not on "a:museum."?
This is a test suite. Such considerations do not apply. Ideally, all
bizarre wrong behaviour should be flagged. In practice, we can't hit it all.
But deliberately throwing out a case we actually thought of, just
because we feel no one would make that mistake, is a silly mistake. The very
act of making *that* silly mistake will cause someone else to make the other
mistake, via a quantum mechanical application of Murphy's Law.
I'll go ahead and add the trailing dot case, if you are *sure* that both
should be permerror. The inconsistency is very ugly, but I suppose it
can't be helped. At least these are corner cases.
