I personally encountered such issue when writing my 'ftp' URI 
specification, where usual RFC 3986 <segment> allows ";" and it needs to 
be escaped because of the role of delimiter.  However, I suppose this is 
out of the scope of 4395bis, and 'wontfix' or 'invalid' seems fine to 
me.  Let's rely on scheme specs' authors' good taste here.
