It's not implementor feedback, but I think this is the best solution. I  
think it's valuable that you can tell what the URL is for just by looking  
at it. Jonas gave an example of how that might be used in practice.

 From what I've heard so far it does not matter much for Opera either, but  
I rather have a new scheme. It also seems safer in case something comes up  
down the road.
