[whatwg] URL: query encoding

Currently encoding the query component of a URL using the document's
encoding affects all URLs with a "relative scheme" (http/ws/file/...).
Should we restrict this to http/https/file so new schemes such as
ws/wss and others will not be affected by this weird legacy quirk? Is
that something implementors would consider following?

The parsing section of http://url.spec.whatwg.org/ has this as an open
issue for now.
