From a "principle of least surprise" point of view, non-specialists would
likely be puzzled by a trailing dot and wonder why it was there. By
contrast, specialists that know the trailing dot is technically *supposed*
to be there are already going to be accustomed to seeing it left out
(because it is already left out in so many other contexts).

So I'm +1 for leaving out the trailing dot, as that likely won't surprise
*any* users.
