Looking at the URI grammar in RFC2396, I think the following rules reply to the two
absoluteURI = scheme ":" ( hier_part | opaque_part )
hier_part = ( net_path | abs_path ) [ "?" query ]
net_path = "//" authority [ abs_path ]
abs_path = "/" path_segments
Therefore, it seems to me that file://file.test should be either file:///file.test
(net_path with empty authority) or file:/file.test (abs_path).
In the example file:///\\someserver\somefolder\myfile.xml the authority is someserver.
This would then result in the URL file://someserver/somefolder/my.xml (net_path). It
is up to the file scheme handler on Windows to interpret this URL and convert it to
the path name \\someserver\somefolder\myfile.xml.
