I discussed this briefly with @bagder
According to RFC3986 Section 3.2.2 on page 21
cURL implements this behaviour for the
filescheme, but doesn't - and cannot - implement this behaviour for schemes it does not know. For such schemes, passing a new flag that permits empty authority sections is desirable.
This PR adds such a
CURLU_NO_AUTHORITYflag, as well as test cases.
