However, the version without http:// is not technically a URL. URL's
must begin by defining their type, and therefore in this case it must
begin http://

This is not pointless rule-keeping. To some email programmes it makes a
different, and to some sites also. For example ftp://cpan.org is quite
different from http://cpan.org

See http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1738.html if you are really interested.
