Either all these implementations are broken or the specification 
which requires % escape processing on the host portion of a URI
(because it makes the URI grammer look nicer). It actually does
not buy us anything to do % escape processing on the host name
and with internationalized domain names, implementations might
have even more reasons to treat the host portion of URIs in 
special ways.
