Indeed Ted, you're right. I was only thinking about HTTP, stupid I am. :)

This probably means that the API should be changed (or should evolve by
addition/deprecation at least) to return a buffer with data, but let
access things like a status code (meaning something more general than
HTTP code) and possibly extra data like the HTTP headers or whatever can
be useful contextual information for the retrieved URL.

I don't know every backend url.el supports, so I can't imagine what a
good abstraction might be. :)
