I mean that "some/file.txt" is an absolute path, in the context of
decoding and splitting an URI, of course. Obviously it is not in
general terms.

That said, I suppose that people who thinks that the third slash is
not a separator, but part of the PATH, should also be arguing in favor
of Windows-style file: URIs being of the form
"file://C:/some/file.txt" (which is clearly incorrect, according to
the spec, and certainly unused in the wild). What does not make sense
is arguing that the value returned by url-generic-parse-url is
correct.
