But it turns out that addressing that question opens up another 
question.  In my implementation that fix caused a (recoverable) parse 
error to be produced for another test case:

I'll note that galimatias doesn't produce a parse error in this case 
(and, in fact, the state machine specified by the current URL Standard 
goes down a completely different path for this case).

The question is: should this be a parse error?
