I do wonder if NotImplementedError is the right exception. According to the documentation it is derived from RuntimeError and is meant for abstract methods, i.e. it is a programmer error. Other cases in urllib.request raise ValueError (e.g. AbstractBasicAuthHandler), which is fairly normal for protocol errors like this.

Also it would be nice to add a test case for the bug fix.
