Comment 1 Norman Walsh 2005-05-17 13:55:39 UTC
On namespace-bindings accessors and namespace nodes

In these sections you refer to URI in a rather colloquial way, e.g. "a set of
prefix/URI pairs" (sec. 5.7) or "prefix, uri, parent" (sec. 6.4.1). Please refer
to the definition of IRI (or anyURI, which is defined in terms of IRI) instead. 	

Based on Martin's review, comment [30]

consensus of the i18n-core-wg, telecon 27 may 2005: approved by i18n-core-wg.
Comment 3 Norman Walsh 2005-06-29 16:04:22 UTC
Adopted the solution accepted for 1350: adding the following text to the
terminology section of the Data Model document:

"Within this specification, the term URI refers to a 
Universal Resource Identifier as defined in RFC 3986 and extended in RFC 3987 
with the new name IRI. The term URI has been retained in preference to IRI to 
avoid introducing new names for concepts such as 'Base URI' that are defined or 
referenced across the whole family of XML specifications."

Please let us know if you find this unsatisfactory.
