That's Relative84 from Graham Klyne's tests at 
http://www.ninebynine.org/Software/HaskellUtils/Network/UriTest.xls

A bit of Googling reveals Rob Cameron brought up the issue before:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/uri/2003Jun/0037.html

Roy Fielding said it's not an issue:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/uri/2003Jun/0040.html

Rob demonstrated that it was, and suggested that the algorithm be
changed to better handle it:

I don't see any evidence that it went any further than this.
