According to

"Validates value as URL (according to ยป"

However RFC 2396 has been made obsolete by RFC 3986. This results in several valid RFC 3986 URIs to not validate correctly, (e.g. protocol agnostic URLs). 

Test script:
echo filter_var("",FILTER_VALIDATE_URL)?"yes":"no";
// Echoes yes

echo filter_var("//",FILTER_VALIDATE_URL)?"yes":"no";
// Echoes no but should echo yes as per section 4.2 of RFC 3986
