> How widespread are these web data URLs used?

The URL is used internally in any Mac application that uses the loadData method, a way to load a webpage from a passed in string or data object. Basically not used in the web browser at all.

> The "createUniqueWebDataURL" has been creating the URLs without the "/" appended, and the slashes (as far as I can tell) have been getting added only in the context of resolving location.href. So if there are other, non-location DOM nodes that contain the URLs, then adding the slash at creation might create a different kind of incompatibility.

That does seem possible.

> My personal investment in this bug is over since I added a workaround in my copy of TinyMCE to avoid the issue I was seeing. Maybe it won't turn out to be a major issue for people, but I wanted to raise it so you can consider the implications.

I see. There may well be nobody else affected.
