Martin, all,

Please find below the VBWG's responses to your last call comment on
URIs/IRIs in VoiceXML2.1

After further discussions, the working group proposes:

- not to add an erratum to VoiceXML2.0: RFC3986 was published after
  VoiceXML2.0. And even though 3986 supercedes 2396, referencing
  RFC2396 was not an error and so shouldn't be corrected in an erratum.
  Similarly for RFC3987.

- to change the VoiceXML2.1 schema to reference RFC3986 instead of the
  now obsolete RFC2396.

- not to add a reference to RFC 3987 to VoiceXML2.1. As explained in
  the specification, "VoiceXML 2.1 specifies a set of features
  commonly implemented by Voice Extensible Markup Language platforms."
  Adding IRIs is a new feature, not currently implemented by VoiceXML
  implementations.  Moreover, RFC3987 was finalised too recently in
  the development of VoiceXML2.1: January 2005, 6 months after the
  publication of this Last Call.

- to consider support for RFC2397 in future versions of VoiceXML. 

We hope you are satisfied with these proposals and their rationales.
Please let us know.

Max.
