Autolink restrictions


#1

http://spec.commonmark.org/0.28/#autolink

Is the simple reason that none of the following relative (i.e. not absolute-URI) autolinks are supposed to be working, that it is too hard to distinguish them from HTML tags?

<directory/>
<file.ext>
</root/file.ext>
<./local/file.ext>
<../upper-level/file.ext>
<#target>
<?query>

Link titles are not explicitly supported in autolinks. Was that a deliberate decision, especially since internal whitespace is disallowed?

<long file.ext>
<me@privacy.net "My Name">
<http://example.com "standardized example domain">

Yes. Some of them even are valid tags (the first one is an empty tag, and the last one is a processing instruction).

Would be handy if at least <./relative/path> form worked.
