Basically web apps expect that window.location behave properly, if you
use a scheme such as data:

data:text/html,<script>alert(window.location.query%20?%20window.location.query%20:%20"query
is not supported")</script>?%20Wouldn't%20it%20be%20nice?

note that i can't do anything useful with this web app encoded as a
data url because query is empty.

Query based web apps are very common.
