Doesn't that also exclude hosts with one-character names?  It's a rare
situation, of course...

I think it's better to handle file:/// URLs explicitly in the
url-file.el code.  They always specify a local file.  So it should only
ask for the local filename handlers in that case.  Would there be any
situation where that's not appropriate?
