Personally I would not put any such check in the http module and leave it as it is. 

After all, one might very well use whatever schema they want, for whatever reason, and still need to speak http over it, e.g.:

http.request( 'fubar://localhost' )

It shouldn't be the business of the http module to dictate what schema one is using, but rather just handle the protocol mechanism, as it does today.

It could. The important thing is not the URL schema, but rather the intent to speak HTTP over it.
