This is definitely a bug.

Technically, see org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFFactory.getExternalAction().
The order of checks is currently so that, for an "http://" URL, the code generates a PDFUri
action, and for an "https://" URL ending in ".pdf" a PDFGoToRemote action...

For all other file types, "https://" will ultimately also generate a PDFUri. It's only the
PDF case where it goes wrong...
