I can think of two gripes I hear on a regular basis:

  - It has its own idea of URI equivalence
    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2002Dec/0235.html

  - Dealing with URIs was introduced only in 1.4 (ie too recently to be used)
    with java.net.URI. Before that only java.net.URL existed (though I'm unsure
    about the exact impact this had on code).
