The WG discussed this issue (and the other one referenced above) last
week at our f2f.  We agree that referencing the IRI RFC would depend
on the formats being compounded, but we also think that making any
recommendations for how hyperlinking should be done would overstep our
mandate.

Thanks for your comment.  Please let us know within 2 weeks if this
doesn't resolve the issue to your satisfaction.

Mark.
