This looks like a Bikeshed bug more than anything else. My impression is
that support for entity-encoded smart quotes is solid cross-browser. I'll
look into it next week when I'm back at the office.

I think this ought to be using the "local scheme" definition from URL (
https://url.spec.whatwg.org/#local-scheme). I don't think making it
pluggable is the right way to go, and browser-internal schemes are somewhat
outside the scope of this document.

That said, Chrome explicitly whitelists `chrome-extension:` URLs; they
bypass CSP entirely. I'd love to recommend that other vendors do the same,
but that seems to lead back into the exciting land of formal objections
from Cox that we resolved a long time ago. I'm going to reopen that can of
worms in CSP3 (sorry in advance, Brad!), but I think it's done for CSP2.

* Java mime-type matching (please, can the Java plugin just die already?)

We just dropped support for `<applet>` in Chrome; I guess I'm disinclined
to add `x-java-vm` and `x-java-bean` unless there's a real need. I suspect
there isn't.
