That case is already defined. The spec says that it should write three empty
strings. See the paragraph starting "On getting, if the input is an absolute
URL" and ending "Otherwise, the attribute must return the empty string." in the
Interfaces for URL manipulation section.

It's new because it gives an actual case, unlike your report, which did not
give enough information to determine the validity of the report.

There is no time as far as I am aware where the components are used if parsing
fails. If there was such a time, that would be a valid bug.
