Nicely summarized.  I am also sympathetic to the cause, but I do not
see upside in tucking the information to the URL syntax.  Even if we
limit ourselves to the CI context, I do not see how the repository
location alone is sufficient (e.g. "build the tip of this branch of
that repository every time it gets updated" already needs more than
the repository location).

Yup.
