The reason I proposed that doesn't have anything to do with whether it
makes sense for the URI code to live in that package in the long term.
- HTTP is also already in the platform
- HTTP uses this code
- the existing Network.URI code is inefficient by design and cannot be
improved without breaking user code
- for backwards compatibility, we would like to have this code live on
somewhere so that porting old code is easier.
