[whatwg] Please disallow "javascript:" URLs in browser address bars

If javascript URI entry support/execution in my address field went away,  
I'd be very pissed! A JS console in the dev tools is not the same  

I might get over it *after a while* if it was off by default with an  
option to re-enable it though. For example, I could imagine having  
separate "support bookmarklets" and "support javascript URIs in the  
address field" options that were both unchecked by default.

However, javascript URI support in the address field has never been a  
problem for me, so I don't like this idea myself. (But, I'm often willing  
to sacrifice for the greater good)
