While using KURL has extra processing charge, I believe that is the correct 
solution. Reasons:

1) Remove query items and references from the URI, as in
	mailto:thiago at nowhere.net?subject=Hullo

2) Process URI-encoded %HH

3) Process ACE-encoded domains
	mailto:thiago at xn--jos-dma.macieira.nowhere.net
would show up in the field:
	thiago at josé.macieira.nowhere.net

(that's my middle name, by the way)

#3 is dependent on Bug #62425
