If you say so ;-)

Well,

Yes, but please remember if you make that interpretation (which I hope
is the correct one) then "c:/some/file.txt" is an absolute local file
name in URL file name syntax.

This is what the RFC says. I even quoted it.

So if we hold on to that interpretation then maybe we should say (and
document ;-) that url-filename returns such a file name

This I didn't say (but any change or unexpected behavior should be documented).

and that it
needs to be translated to the actually used systems file syntax to be
used there.

I explicitly talked about (concat "/" (url-filename ...))

Don't you mean: (expand-file-name (url-filename ...) "/")

This would be an incompatible change from the current (faulty)
behaviour, but I think it would be the best.

This is what I've been saying in pretty much every message from this thread.

So yes, "I say so".
