The algorithm in <http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-5.2.2>
references a function to remove_dot_segments
<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-5.2.4>. The "only" text
(first written in SPARQL 1.0) was intended to say that the only
permissible normalization was that described in 5.2. Don't go case
folding, appending default port nunbers, unescaping unnecessary
%-encoded sequences, or any of the other desperate measures described
in section 6.  Normalization and Comparison.
