I see no particular need to support changing path.

Not sure about query; Gecko doesn't support query to start with on what 
you describe as non-relative URIs (as in, it's considered part of 
"scheme data" for our purposes and we don't parse that at all) so I'm 
not sure what use cases there might be for it.

What are examples of non-relative URIs that use query?  mailto:, I guess?
