Are you referring to the "permissible charset" for ranges of characters 
or the condition disallowing reserved characters?  I've only omitted the 
ones that should be percent-encoded.  Honestly, we just need terse prose 
requiring something globally unique; I wanted to allow the Chrome Team's 
use of URL-tagging, and largely do allow it if they percent encode things.

Is this nit backed by a use case?  Does Opera wish to URl-tag the 
opaqueString production as well, and does escaping characters fall short 
of that requirement?
