I’m no IPv6 expert, but there seems to be a few standards:

* <> (Feb 2013). Encodes as http://[fe80::1%25eth0]/; says Windows uses this form. Also mentions the unencoded http://[fe80::1%eth0]/ form. Says that the HTTP Host header should not include the scope zone identifier, since it is not necessarily relevant to the server.

* <> (Nov 2013). Encodes as http://[v1.fe80::1+eth0]/; says CUPS uses this form. Also acknowledges the RFC %25 form. Says that the Host header _should_ include the scope, to help with servers that send back self-referencing absolute URLs.

Also, I would probably find IP.split('%', 1)[0] easier to read than a regular expression.
