I don't quite understand what you're asking here.  My change removes
all w3 dependency.

Since url-dired is used for ftp and file URLs only, and ange-ftp and
tramp take care of such remote directories and files, I think it's
unnecessary to hand things off to a web browser via browse-url.  In
fact, the directories are under ange-ftp or tramp's control already -
`url-find-file-dired' uses `find-file' to open the directory, and only
`RET' and `mouse-2' are redefined in `url-dired-minor-mode'.
