They are still important to consider if we want STD 66 to be the interface.

And yes, I know about URI and relative references. We call URI an
absolute URL and a relative reference a relative URL and together we
call them URLs. We can have this discussion in whatever terminology
you prefer though. The input to the parser is always going to be a
relative reference, just sometimes there's no base URI.

As for your last point. We have invested time and money in explaining
several problems starting over four years ago. Nothing happened. I
just explained how I came to the text in the URL Standard. I gave up
trying to work with STD 66 because the people working on that never
invested time in my problems with it and the data I had gathered
(mostly studying code in implementations and writing adhoc tests)
suggested it was not a suitable starting point.
