I should maybe have also mentioned this one :

* RFC "Relative Uniform Resource Locators"

But I'm not so sure of my interpretation as of this new day.

While the RFC says :
fileurl        = "file://" [ host | "localhost" ] "/" fpath

I'm more inclined to think about it as :
fileurl        = "file://" [ hostpart "/"] fpath
hostpart       =  host | "localhost"

with fpath which could be 
/home/user/data/fileResource or

...but according to the RFC fpath cannot start with an "/"
so it seems that my first interpretation was good, but I'm not
Some tests on Windows could be done too. But how far one is to trust a
Microsoft implementation, is just another problem.

Like Dave, I would really appreciate, to have some feedback on this, 
to know what others think about it.
And Dave, if you find it out, please let me know.
