It is, IMHO, a matter of deep regret that "URI" is not
defined as

	"url"{w}"("{w}{string}{w}")"

As it stands, it panders to the needs of those who
habitually place white space between the parentheses
and the string, whilst totally alienating those who
habitually place white space before the open
parenthesis.  Is there any possibility that both
groups could be treated equally in some not-
too-distant re-write of the specification ?
