You are. URLs are specified to be in *ASCII*. There is a %-encoding
hack that allows you to represent random-octet filenames as ASCII.
Some people (including me) think it's a good idea to use this hack
to specify non-ASCII characters with double encoding (first as UTF-8,
then with the %-hack), but the URI Syntax RFC doesn't say.
