Description:
------------
FILTER_VALIDATE_URL rejects URLs with umlauts in the path. Umlauts are 
not allowed in the domain (object of #42353), but in the path, they are 
(at least, everybody supports them).

Reproduce code:
---------------
$url = 'http://www.example.com/ex?mple';
var_dump(filter_var($url, FILTER_VALIDATE_URL));

Expected result:
----------------
string(30) "http://www.example.com/example"

Actual result:
--------------
bool(false)

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at
http://www.php.net/manual/ and the instructions on how to report
a bug at http://bugs.php.net/how-to-report.php

They are not allowed. Browser often (not all do that btw.) translate them in the adressbar for convenience but that's far off from any standard.

RFC3986 specifies a URI to conatain only 
   ALPHA / DIGIT / "-" / "." / "_" / "~" / "%" HEXDIG HEXDIG / "!" / "$" / "&" / "'" / "(" / ")" / "*" / "+" / "," / ";" / "="
where ALPHA is defined as a-zA-Z and DIGIT as 0-9.
