           Summary: data: URLs

Currently, the RFC for data: URLs (RFC 2397 at
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2397 ) omits the maximum length for a data: URL.
For developers to be able to safely use data: URLs, developers need to be
gauranteed a "minimum maximum" length of data: URLs. Since RFC 2397 does not
specify this minimum maximum length, and since many user agents already
implement multi-megabyte data: URLs, the HTML spec should set a "minimum
maximum" length of data: URLs. For example:

"A user agent must accept data: URLs of at least XYZ megabytes in length."
