I think we've been over this, and it's the main reason for the
'security considerations' section.

We already had this with

gopher://whitehouse.gov:25/HELO%20host.com%0cMAIL%20from:<sucka>RCPT%20to:<president>%0f...

etc. case. URL interpreting agents need to be careful, and
descriptions of URL schemes need to point out all of the pitfalls so
that URL interpreting agents don't fall into them.
