# Might I suggest that this decision is best left to RFC 3986, which

# implementation, I think, and should be fixed there, not grafted into
# a specification.

The decision we're talking about isn't whether two URLs are equivalent
in general, but whether they are the same identifier; and that is
still an application- or protocol-level decision.  I haven't claimed
that two URLs are equivalent even if they differ only by scheme.
