Aren’t zippers supposed to open on both ends?

I happily sewed the zipper into Joie de Vivre two days ago, and was mostly pleased with the results.  However, I discovered a small hitch (after it was all sewn in, of course).  Observe.

This is the bottom of the zipper.  Notice that metal stop, immediately below the zipper?  Yeah.  It’s one piece, not two.  This means that the zipper does not open on the bottom.  Not ideal.  I’m really not sure how I managed to find a zipper like that, let alone sew it into my sweater.  So, tomorrow I’m going to get a new zipper, and make sure that it’s one that opens on both ends.
