Different layer of abstraction.  It belongs in the part after the colon
because it modifies something chosen after the part before the colon is

How many many implementers did it before is that the part before the colon
is the 'name' of the service; and there is only a limited list.
If you want to list your imap mailbox from konqueror you can use the imap:
name, and pass various options to it by altering the url after the colon.

In other works; don't use this way unless you want to invent something
new which can not communicate with anyone else.
