The PHOTO value is an URL. That already defines how to decode it, there's nothing special about it. In particular, you cannot just strip a the file:// prefix and use the remainder as file name. One has to do URL decoding. Whether encoding is really used is a different matter. The code has to assume that it is, and from that perspective it is actually good to have it tested. Obviously it is less nice for testers and developers. Do we agree to treat this as a low priority feature request for EDS ("avoid quoting of number when creating photos") that can be deferred?
