The rationale is that our libraries should reject invalid input
to prevent third party clients which pass invalid input from crashing.
Clients passing a canonicalised path instead of a URL are not violating
API rules at the syntactic level so they shouldn't just crash.

And there's no reason to have our own client pass invalid input either.
