I just have a small editorial comment for now. It would be nice if the  
document was agnostic of HTML5. E.g. XMLHttpRequest requires identical  
handling of URLs and I am pretty sure CSS does too. (And very likely every  
specification that deals with them and user agents implement, but I have  
not tested that exhaustively.)

Having just noticed appendix B "The algorithm below allows square brackets  
in the <host> field; the algorithm in section 2 above does not." is that  
what user agents do too? (Not really sure how to test that...)
