That's true, I should have thought of that. Of course URLs are a string-based language, and the language has to have reserved characters. But what of the characters that are "unsafe because gateways and other transport agents are known to sometimes modify such characters". I was thinking more about those. It seems that they should be handled transparently, as MIME encoding is in a modern mail program. Of course ~ is usually bandied about despite its "unsafeness", but I would be surprised if browsers are smart enough to encode it during transmission for "safety."
