Thing is that foo/bar in the example above actually is supposed to be a 
hierarchy consisting of the segments foo and bar according to rfc3986. 
But after having checked it closer, the comment in the end of chapter 5 
seem to mean that is shouldn't be used and only is part of the spec to 
cover a loophole in rfc1630 the predecessor of rfc2396. So we shouldn't 
use it anyway.
