Itís been pointed out in off-list correspondence that this statement is a bit misleading. ALL current browsers do follow the specification correctly, but because of RFC2119 language not being strict on what MUST be implemented, but only a suggestion about what SHOULD be implemented:

http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/FileAPI/#DefinitionOfScheme

Also, no string in JavaScript is truly opaque; this should also be fixed.

Useful input from implementers will be about URL-nesting and security implications, including the pros and cons of URL-encoding components of origin strings.
