You know I suppose there is some benefit in being anal about the correct
yntax for a local file URL, but the discussion clearly shows that the
end user shouldn't need to figure out the correct syntax, they need an
easier way to do it. :)

That's completely different, and I suspect it's supposed to be
http://host[:port]/blah, in which case http://host:/blah would
be invalid (I haven't checked the relevant RFC, though.)

Also, file:///blah is supposed to be equivalent to
file://localhost/blah AFAIK.

"d" is not a hostname, so how could file://d:/blah be valid?
And d: is not a host:port either.

Maybe this is valid:

file:///d:/blah (three slashes before the "d".)

:) They probably had some reason for it, but I won't argue.
