We have been trying to understand what to do about cases like the following:

As things are now, ArchivesSpace will allow a value like this, but various renderings and transformations will not work as expected. I am wondering if:

  1.  This is a legacy bug; the field should have originally validated values to ensure they were URIs
  2.  This is a presentation layer bug: non URIs should be allowed in the file_uri field, but HTML and PDF presentations need to accommodate that.
  3.  Everything is fine. Users should be able to put whatever they want in file_uri, but if they want it to present right they need to write a plugin.

This isn’t an academic question, as this is currently happening with records created automatically by Preservica software.
