    Classification: Unclassified

data: URLs almost always successfully parse per the URL parser, but the URL
processing step can go wrong. Maybe if that goes wrong it should be a 400 Bad
Request? Or maybe 500 Internal Server Error?

So e.g.

data:test

parses fine as a URL, but does not parse fine as a data: URL.
