> Felix,
> In meetings on May 19 and June 7, the Query and XSLT working groups considered 
> this comment. The working groups feel that it is undesirable to globally 
change 
> all occurrences of "URI" to "IRI" because many terms such as "base URI" are in 
> common use throughout the family of XML-related specifications. However, the 
> working groups agreed to make the following changes:
> 
> (1) In the XPath and XQuery specifications, replace references to RFC 2396 
with 
> references to RFC 3986 and 3987.
> 
> (2) In the XPath and XQuery specifications, Section 2 (Basics), add the 
> following paragraph: "Within this specification, the term URI refers to a 
> Universal Resource Identifier as defined in RFC 3896 and extended in RFC 3897 
> with the new name IRI. The term URI has been retained in preference to IRI to 
> avoid introducing new names for concepts such as 'Base URI' that are defined 
or 
> referenced across the whole family of XML specifications."
> 
> (3) In the XQuery specification, Section 2.4.5 (URI Literals), add the 
> following note: "The xs:anyURI type is designed to anticipate the introduction 
> of Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRI's) as defined in [RFC 3987]."
> 
> We hope that these changes will address your concerns. Please let us know 
> whether you find these changes to be an acceptable response to your comment.
