It's all TBL's fault for inventing a URL format that puts the domain name

I say we storm the W3C to make them pay for their sins.  Or better yet, make
them run the registries, that'll show 'em. :)
I think you'll find that TBL has, on several occasions, commented that he never intended for URLs (or HTML for that matter) to be presented to or handled by humans.
