I think I put it a bit too forcefully, but I find that the definitional
sentence:

We will refer to Web addresses that allow the use of characters from a wide
range of scripts as Internationalized Resource Identifiers or IRIs


only gives a vague notion of what an IRI is. Then it plunges into what
applications and protocols need to do to support it.
