R. David Murray added the comment:

The article is *explaining* basic auth, thus the pedegogy of the presentation, and why it is a "see also" and not part of the docs proper.

I'll admit I don't understand the first part of that comment, since the second part says you do have to put the protocol in the URL, which is what the example does.

As I said, would you care to propose a replacement?
