I think the behavior may be best described as "it shows the literal version
of the link that it followed".

I seem to have taken this discussion way off subject. I was only
trying to point out that protecting users from browser->cmdline pasting
is a battle that we cannot win.

Back to the original topic: If I read the RFCs correctly, URLs
cannot contain ' '. This means, to me, that the URL validator should
reject strings containing spaces (or other illegal sequences), yielding
the message "That is not a well-formed URL". I think this makes for
unambiguous encoding, and unsurprising behavior.
