I strongly suggest ignoring browser address bars.  As the author of most of
the Chromium omnibox code, I can testify that there's a ton of fixup,
heuristics, and other stuff that's designed to get the user "what they want"
that should never be in a spec.  I think limiting the scope to URLs consumed
as part of web content makes more sense.
