The latest url.sty still contains stuff like

\@namedef{Url at OT1encSpecials}{%
   \do\Œ{\mathchar"3E }\do\œ{\mathchar"1B }\do\ß{\mathchar"19 }%
   \do\~{\lower.45ex\hbox{\m at th$\mathchar126$}}% For tt style
   % lots more to add, but I should later link into inputenc
   \Url at OTnonTT % more for any but typewriter
