comment Should plus be encoded in mailto: hyperlinks?
In RFC 3986, mailto would be treated as path-rootless, which allows sequence of pchar defined by (unreserved / pct-encoded / sub-delims / ":" / "@"). + is part of sub-delims. So strict reading says + does not require percent encoding.

If you have encode + in URI, @ also needs to be encoded because it's also a reserved character. If you read the RFC carefully, you will find out that in a opaque part, + is legal.

When a part does not start with /, + no longer becomes a reserved character.
