No, it's to propose abandoning normalization because it's not

Normalization is defined in RFC 3986.

But see above.
I agree; but different existing behavior makes this impossible. We
can't list everything which is currently supported by all
implementations in the Standards Track document, but we can do this in
and normalize all existing types of behavior with regard to
handling 'about' URIs. It will be easier for Gecko to change its
behavior rather than for other apps to do this.
Mykyta, we do need to make this spec document reality, particularly
where implementations are unwilling to make changes.
If it doesn't do that, then the spec is useless. I will be reviewing
the options and look into exactly how other browsers handle these
cases, and make appropriate changes to the spec.
