Comment (by gk):

 While I may agree that the warning is inappropriate in this case I am not
 sure I want to have a client program on the user's computer opened by
 clicking on a mailto: link by default. I'd like to avoid the correlation
 between clicking on the mailto: link and IP address leaks due to mail
 clients e.g. auto-fetching mails on start-up.
