- If HTML5 makes it depend on the property of being "hierarchical", it either
needs to define that term, or reference the definition somewhere else.
Currently it doesn't, and that's why I raised the bug.

- The definition can not hard-wire specific scheme names, because that would
make it impossible to deploy new schemes; so it needs to be sufficient to
inspect the given base URI, given the fact that the scheme may be unknown.

- That being said, the example given above (IE8 parsing data URIs) seems to
indicate that implementations do not uniformly special-case non-hierarchical
URIs; thus it should be considered to drop the distinction here.
