Only file:/// or file://localhost/ should point to the local
filesystem.  file://example.org/foo.bar is a valid uri to some
resource on example.org using some (unspecified) access method.

Whether emacs still should handle URIs of that form, and if so
how, are /interesting/ questions.

(Back in the day, ftp /was/ the correct answer.  Perhaps not any more?)
