    This might mean that the feature has to be modified.  Since URLs are
    more common than Emacs, I am afraid Emacs will need to adapt.

Emacs does not *need to* adapt to anything.

    E.g., "//" would have its special meaning only if it is not preceded
    by "^[a-z]+:".

That might be a workable approach that keeps both features working.
It is worth a try.
