I don't agree. As I mentioned in my mail, it looks like the URL parser
of both Python and Elixir are kinda using RFC 1808's rules for URL
validity. My interpretation of section 2.2 indicates that the empty
string is a valid relative URL. (A URL can be a relativeURL, which can
be a rel_path, which -I think- can be zero characters.)

Moreover, if Elixir is doing it wrong, then so is Python. Note that both
URL parsers in question are in the standard libraries of their
respective languages.
