--- Comment #17 from Robin Berjon <robin@w3.org> ---
I'm moving this to .next because:

• It won't be addressed before CR;
• It's probably too big of a change to address in CR;
• While not specified in an optimal manner, the behaviour appears to be
supported by all browsers save one and so is widespread (user questions on
StackOverflow show that it does lead to interop issues);
• The slated replacement for this section (Anne's URL spec) maintains this
feature.

So all in all, removing this text now would do more harm than good, and would
be less in line with reality than including it, even if it is imperfect. This
doesn't mean we're giving up on perfection: that's what .next is for.
