C0 controls could appear in the middle of a URL
> location.href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/?foo=\0&bar=\1" Exception: "The URI is malformed" // \1 should be stripped and \0 should be escaped to %00 and same for: location.assign("http\0://fo\0o.b\0ar/pa\0th#ha\0sh") location.search="?foo=\0&bar=\1" etc...

Anne, From what I can tell, C0&space are still not allowed in the scheme and host. As of now, we enforce that we encode all C0 characters&space (except \r\n\t which are stripped) in the path, query and hash, the other exception being \0 - which we can't allow at the moment, since some of our API's still use C null-terminated strings. Is this OK?
I think the \0 behavior is broken (I believe most other user agents handle it fine), but the rest sounds like it matches the specification, yes.
Wasn't baku just fixing this kind of cases in some other bug? Or perhaps this is some different variant of it.
