I do not really see why we should be escaping … or other characters  
outside the ASCII range. After all these URLs are not going over HTTP so  
we do not have the same restrictions.

I am not really sure what URL-tagging is in this context and I think Opera  
can implement whatever is decided. I just would like it not to be  
something arbitrary.
