What missing information?

If the username is empty the resulting telnet URL should just not
have any username listed, which was even the expected behaviour
the OP wrote.

In fact, *not* having a username, but relying on remote login(8)
for authentification instead, is the default telnet behaviour.

So there is not any “missing information” that needs filling.

<igli> yeah but it means if you really care about something, don't
    ritualise it, or you will lose it. don't fetishise it, don't
    obsess. or you'll forget why you love it in the first place.
