"...pretending to define a new URL standard as part
of HTML5 is not acceptable. ... HTML will never define the identifiers for the Web. That would be a fundamental violation of the Web architecture."
"Please note that we spent 12 years reaching a global agreement on
the meaning of URI, URL, URN, Web addresses, or whatever else you
might call them. ... I suggest that the section be removed or replaced with the
limited and specific needs for parsing href and src attribute
values such that the attribute's value string is mapped to a
URI-reference with a defined base-URI."
