Valid URL indeed, but not a URL that a windows user would want. Since they
want the letter and the colon to be part of the path, not to be host and port
number.

 file:///d%7c/blah

I am in favour of supporting netscape's apprach just because they've been
using it widely and extensively for a long period of time.
