Actually that is for the HTTP specification to define, which right now
does so implicitly by allowing only URIs. Restating requirements usually
leads to specifications stating conflicting requirements, it's best not
done at all, except in informative notes clearly limited to the known
cases (e.g., "Note: Because HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1 allow only URIs as
request URIs, user agents will transform the IRI to an URI when creating
the request message.", though I would not add this).
