The various RFCs for URIS basically mandate a format like this:


Trouble is that IPv6 numberic addresses are incompatible with that form..
Using % (uri escape char) and / (uri path seperator) are both no

We may just find that you cannot use IPv6 numeric addresses at all with
alot of things...

It seems to me that using : for the seperator was a very bad idea :<
