Moreover, the current spec asks User-Agents to replace backslashes AFTER
resolving the URI. But actual implementations (at least Mozilla on Windows for
file URIs) replace it BEFORE resolving. Otherwise relative path resolving will
not be handled correctly (consider about ".\" or "..\" or
"\topleveldirectory").
It's obvious that the backslash replacement clause was added in an unconsidered
way.
