In that it specifies "foo" as the host.

file:///path appears to be invalid according to RFC3986, as the `host'
part is not optional if // follows the scheme.  However,
file:///etc/hosts is used as an example in the RFC.  I'm not sure what
to think here.

What is clear is that file:///foo is definitely a "normal" URI, in
practice, so we should probably interpret ://[/?#] as indicating no
authority, instead of being invalid.  I have done this in stable-2.0.
