Subject Re: DefaultComponent - Validating URI
Date Tue, 18 Nov 2008 06:37:16 GMT
My personal preference would be to not add extra validation.  The main  
reason is that there are quite a few other characters that are not  
allowed either ('=' for instance) and in the general case url  
(semantical) validation is not an easy thing to do (i.e. the benefit  
would be quite limited imho).  The url parser did the right thing, and  
I think we could rely on developers testing their apps and make sure  
that the url they pass is indeed the intended one.

So a non-binding -1 from me.
