To be able to use /check/referer, a user agent must send the "Referer"
HTTP header when following the link.

What happens now is that the request indicates that validation of the
referring page is wanted, but if there's no Referer header, so as far as
validator is concerned, there's no URI to be validated, so its scheme is

But there really should be a better error message in this situation,
I'll file a bug.
