ISSUE-395: URI developments ⓣ

URI developments ⓣ

Raised by:
Addison Phillips
Opened on:

This section defines URI as:

[Definition: Within this specification, the term URI Reference, unless otherwise stated, refers to a string in the lexical space of the xs:anyURI datatype as defined in [XML Schema Part 2].] Note that this is a wider definition than that in [RFC3986]: in particular, it is designed to accommodate Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs) as described in [RFC3987], and thus allows the use of non-ASCII characters without escaping.

This is a Good Thing, but continuing developments in the URI/IRI/URL space need to be tracked. I don't see any specific changes needed now: I'm creating this as a tracking issue.
