It breaks things.  file:/// is a perfectly good protocol, computer:/// is

Microsoft, I'm not just being anti-Microsoft it really is a bad idea).

In a default Gnome install, I don't see the term "computer:///" used anywhere. To see it, I'd have to do one of two things:

  1. type ctrl+L and type "computer:///"
  2. use the browser mode, show the location bar and choose "Computer"
     from the places menu.

It is just an implementation detail, and isn't obviously exposed to the user.
