I'll reopen the bug now.

Whereas people understand better, this is not correct in terms of RFC 3986.  It
specifies a ":" character as a delimiter, and everything before it in the URI
is a scheme name.  So it is incorrect to point to eg. 'http:' scheme because it
literally leads to URI like "http:://smth.org/".

Moreover, as HTML spec is available in HTML, and you actively use highlighting
there, I doubt there will be any problems with understanding.

Please reconsider this proposal.
