It looks like webkit_web_view_load_uri() it won't do anything if the URI has not protocol. I could workaround it in Liferea by appending "http://" to the URI if it doesn't contain "://" in it, but that sounds quite hackish.

Could WebKit handle this?

A URI by definition has a scheme associated with it.  WebKit shouldn't be trying to guess what scheme a malformed URL is associated with.
