[Excerpted from another email, with different subject]

Looking at http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-hoffman-ftp-uri-04.txt:

I can't see anything in the ftp: draft to suggest how ftp:/// should be 
interpreted (i.e. with an empty authority field).  The only hint I see that 
it is a legal ftp: URI is in the broad-brush statement:
    An FTP URL follows the standard syntax described in
    draft-fielding-uri-rfc2396bis [2396bis].
which implicitly, by omission of any contrary qualification, permits ftp:///.
