Roy,
here's what I added.
Do you think it is clear enough?

<h2>Is it relative-URL compatible?</h2>
Many applications know and love relative URLs. Therefore, the
following questions must be asked:
<ul>
  <li> Can it be parsed according to RFC 1808 - that is, if the tokens
       "//", "/", ";", "?" and "#" are used, do they have the meaning
       given in RFC 1808?
  <li> Does it make sense to use it in relative URLs like those RFC
       1808 specifies?
  <li> Are there ways of using pieces of the information inside it
       that implementations are supposed to get right?
</ul>
