In general, I think the Apache docs are aimed at a user who is already
experienced with computers and with the Internet.  This is especially true
of the module docs, which are the "reference" part of the documentation.
I believe that it many cases they are too terse.  However, I don't think
we want these docs to be explaining basic internet concepts.

We have also started (mostly with contributions from Rich Bowen) a set of
"tutorials" which are aimed at a slightly more novice user.  I hope this
will expand in the future.

As far as the question at hand: should I be using terms like "scheme"
without defining them?  I'm really not sure.  I hope that giving the
example makes things clear even for people who don't understand the terms.
I thought of referencing the RFC which really defines URL, but I figured
that this would make things even more obscure.

Any other opinions?
