Use case:

Someone downloads a page from your website and stores it locally. Then the user opens it and the user will be tracked and the URL might look like

file:///C:/Users/myname/AppData/Local/...

This way we actually track personal data potentially by accident without knowing.

I'm assuming we could always exclude this protocol or should we have a way to opt in or opt out of this? Would this be a BC break?
