This does not match what I find in browsers. (I did not look through
the list exhaustively, see below, but since this was the first one...)


I also found out today that
https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/commit/2712b5611a4e048e04a7dc814a7a31413d2d367a
has not been checked against the specification. So all those tests are
likely wrong. File URLs differ per browser and per platform so there
will always be differences there. I tried to come up with a sensible
algorithm, but it might need checking again.

Overall, the URL specification could likely use another month of
serious work on the parser side. It is not clear to me now would be
good to invest that time. I would like to see some more interest from
implementers first.
