What optimizations are we talking about here, specifically?

Note that my general view for how URL objects should work internally in 
Gecko is that we should have an immutable backing store and mutators 
that clone-with-modifications (basically copy on write).  Of course in 
terms of the web-exposed behavior we'd just have the web-exposed URL 
change which internal object it points to on mutation, so we can expose 
whatever mutators we want.
