Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (ODATA-1144) Allow percent-encoded colon in time values in URLs

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/ODATA-1144?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=68971#comment-68971 ] 

Evan Ireland commented on ODATA-1144:

See https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-3.3

"In addition, a URI reference (Section 4.1) may be a relative-path reference, in which case the first path segment cannot contain a colon (":") character."

Since we may prefer to use relative URLs to avoid issues with proxy servers, the percent-encoding would appear to be essential.

That is unless relative URLs start with "./" so that the key predicate appears in the second path segment.

>                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/ODATA-1144
>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: ABNF Construction Rules
>    Affects Versions: V4.01_CS01, V4.0_ERRATA03
>         Environment: Proposed
>            Reporter: Ralf Handl
>             Fix For: V4.01_CS02, V4.0_ERRATA04
> The ABNF currently does not allow percent-encoded colons in URLs.
> This is an unnecessary restriction and collides with the habit of many URL libraries to over-eagerly percent-encode everything except ALPHA and DIGIT.
