Responsibility for useability of IRIs unclear


  The host language may permit a Linking Attributes Collection to be  
applied to XForms elements as an alternate means of obtaining content  
related to the element. An example is the src attribute from [XHTML 1.0].  
The schedule by which link traversal occurs is defined by the host  
language. If the link traversal fails, the host language may dispatch  
xforms-link-exception or xforms-link-error to the model associated with  
the in-scope evaluation context node of the element that bears the Linking  
Attributes Collection for the failed link.

Does this mean that the host language is responsible whether XForms allows  
for using
IRIs []
  or not? Please answer this question in the specification and provide a  
reference (normative or informative, depending on the answer) to the IRI
