i just took what i liked (i.e. found less confusing); since i hate long 
url's (one reason why one can have clickable ones with alternative 
rendering) i don't care to much either .. anything looks bad in running

in mkiv you can set up your own preferences with

\sethyphenatedurlnormal
\sethyphenatedurlbefore
\sethyphenatedurlafter

and in mkii you can play with

\chardef\urlsplitmode = 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
