I think the processor has some latitude on this one. The XML Schema spec says
that after escaping it must be a "legal URI according to [RFC 2396], as amended
by [RFC 2732]. The term "legal URI" isn't actually used or defined in those
specs. This URI conforms to the "general syntax" for URIs described in section
3 of the RFC, but not to "hierarchic syntax" used for http URIs. The Schema
spec says in a non-normative note that "Each URI scheme imposes specialized
syntax rules for URIs in that scheme, including restrictions on the syntax of
allowed fragment identifiers", and that minimally-conforming processors are not
expected to validate against these specialized syntax rules; but it's not clear
that this Note makes it wrong for a processor to check that a URI in the http
scheme adheres to the syntax of a hierarchic URI.
