i was aware, but i didn't read it first. the scheme does seem to be required for a valid url. however, the rfc doesnt specify any valid schemes, so anything with a colon could look like a valid url (// is not required). however, uris without a scheme are very very common, and ignoring that would solve the problem of highlighting literally almost everything, but would leave some things unclickable when they might be expected to be (e.g. or ).

to each, his own. maybe there are some special cases where it makes sense. personally, any time i need to click something i feel sad. and if a browser opens when i wasn't expecting it (like any time i am working in a terminal emulator or any program other than a browser), i feel even more sad. 
i also resent being told  "im doing it wrong".
