Please stop the "fiction" rhetoric. There's also a lot of fiction in 
HTML5 (such as requiring rewriting of \ for all URI schemes), and I 
don't see you arguing about *that*.

I do agree that URIs leak, but that doesn't necessarily mean that we can 
have the same processing requirements everywhere. For instance, there 
are cases where whitespace acts as a delimiter and thus will not be 
accepted as URI character, no matter how much you want it to.
