And there is
The latter mentions
Some applications generate URIs with no authority component at all, such as
Which still doesn't address the issue of whether that should be considered RFC
compliant or not.
I would like to see a draft that explicitly makes the authority component
optional in the file-scheme because it makes no sense to have it if the
hostname is not specified anyway. rfc2396bis leaves plenty of room for that
since it offers the possibility of both ("//" authority path-abempty) and
(path-absolute) for hier-part. Although most schemes will pick either one and
stick with that, there is nothing that prevents the file scheme to allow
both. All it takes is to state that an undefined authority should be
considered equivalent to an empty authority.
