"W3C-specific note: This specification documents current RFC 3986 and 
RFC 3987 handling in contemporary Web browser implementations. As a 
consequence, this specification is not compatible with those RFCs. It is 
published for the purpose of providing a stable reference for the HTML5 
specification and reflecting current Web browser HTML5 implementations. 
The W3C Technical Architecture Group expects to continue the work on the 
URL specification and produce a future version that will attempt to 
re-align the URL specification with an updated version of RFC 3986 while 
preserving interoperability."
