Description:
------------
According to http://php.net/manual/en/filter.filters.validate.php

"Validates value as URL (according to ยป http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2396)"

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("https://example.com/path/to/resource?query=param",FILTER_VALIDATE_URL)?"yes":"no";
// Echoes yes

echo filter_var("//example.com/path/to/resource?query=param",FILTER_VALIDATE_URL)?"yes":"no";
// Echoes no but should echo yes as per section 4.2 of RFC 3986
