No, it does what users expect it to.

(url-generic-parse-url "http://góogle.com/fóo";)
=> [cl-struct-url "http" nil nil "góogle.com" nil "/fóo" nil nil t nil t]

"Aha, so 'góogle.com' is the domain name."

That you have to encode the data returned before doing network stuff
(which is what the RFC talks about) is a completely different matter.

The function is used to decompose URLs found in nature.  Those URLs
contain non-ASCII characters.
