your browser will have some troubles if it has to resolve relative URIs
for example, resolving state:MA/city:Boston upon 
http://www.example.com/country:US/ will fail : your browser should warn 
you that the scheme "state" is unknown
moreover, this relative URI is not one : it is an opaque URI, not a 
hierarchical one
