If it's a "feature you're seldom interested in" then I don't see how you can say the "benefits of supporting it are great". It seems to me you are interested in accessing resources on the local disk, not specifically interested in using the "file:" URI scheme per se. So it is that former that is great, not the latter.
I never once suggested removing the ability to use resources on the local disk. I only (half-jokingly) suggested that supporting a particular URI scheme for specifying such, when the meaning of that particular scheme could be ambiguous, might be questionable.
And as I said, I am okay with the current answer.
