Slightly different - "RDF URI Reference" is a specific RDF term which 
we're changing.  A datatype URI is a normal URI.

Uniformly using "IRI" seems to me to be better.

A para of text somewhere at the beginning of concepts, explaining this 
woudl be helpful but, as a spec, I think we should use be uniofrm and 
use the same, correct term everywhere.

"RDF URI Reference" is a precursor for IRI.
