There is no situation or context in which it is appropriate for
balanced parentheses to appear as a suggested URI syntax.  It is
the wrong choice in all circumstances.

Since this example is an http URI, it can easily be

    http://www.foo.com/bar/baz.jar/COM/foo/Quux.xml#foo

HTTP servers do not contain files.
