The hierarchy structure is not compliant with RFC 3986.

For example, "smb://foo" + "../bar" must resolve to "smb://foo/../bar", 
not "smb://bar" ("//bar" would be allowed).
"smb://" also does not fit into the generic SMB syntax, "smb:" is not an 
alternative as it is a relative URL to the current document.

Collisions between DNS and NETBIOS names should be avoided, too.
