As long as we're worring about URL internationalization,
can we do something about the "http://www." prefix too?
If some users can only type in greek characters or kana/kanji,
they will not be able to type in those 7 initial latin
letters.

When I tell people that I worked on the URL standard, they
usually complain to me about "http://www", especially about
how hard it is to pronounce.
