URI & URIUtil classes should be spun off into a Commons project of its own.

be merged with Commons-Codec rather than spun off. HttpClient will introduce Commons-Codec
as a dependency in the future. So, we should rather extend the existing frameworks, not create
competing ones.

I agree 100%. Actually I was planning to post the same thoughts in response
