Originally suggested by Marco here.

This is to replace this safety check in UnifiedComplete that is being removed in bug 1623637.

Currently we run a looksLikeUrl check on each token of the typed query. If any look like a URL, we don't show results. We spoke with Product, and we're instead going to show suggestions in all cases except when URIFixup identifies the full query as a URI. This should offer suggestions for all the examples in bug 1551049 comment 0.

We are also going to run an experiment (bug 1643386) to see if users find suggestions based on short queries useful, to potentially not fetch suggestions for those queries to improve user privacy.
