Yep. It's intentional, but I don't know why:

QUrl QUrl::resolved(const QUrl &relative) const

    // be non strict and allow scheme in relative url
    if (!relative.d->scheme.isEmpty() && relative.d->scheme != d->scheme) {
        t = relative;
    } else {
        the relative path calculation here
    some more work

    return t;
