Those docs say:
"To access the text of a document from the web, first obtain its URL
AS A STRING..." [emphasis added]
which means that URLs are not a first-class data type in Racket at all. URLs in
Racket are just strings, exactly the same as in Python.
There is a url struct:
but there no first-class syntactic support for them, as ints and lists have in
123 # rather than int("123")
[1, 2] # rather than list(1, 2)

Just like Racket, URLs in Python are not first-class. They start as a string,
and then you parse them into a tuple:
