URL + efs confusion

Sometimes people put local URLs into their RSS feeds, like

<img src="file:/c:/thing/foo">

This ends up as a url call like this:

(url-retrieve "file:/c:/thing/foo" #'ignore)

which ends up prompting me for my ftp password, since c:/thing/foo is
interpreted as an efs file name.

This seems not very optimal.  Could there be situations where that URL
makes sense to interpret that way?  And what about on Windows machines?

Anybody have any suggestions about on what level this should be fixed?
Gnus, shr or url?  And how?  :-)
