Hello Art, others,

I'm interested to know how widget: URIs behave with respect to IRIs.
The only potentially related text I can find is "Unicode serialisations 
for widget origins" in 4.3.

Regards,    Martin.

P.S.: I also found this spec rather difficult to read because it very 
frequently references the "Packaging and Configuration" spec, and is 
impossible to understand without constantly referring back to that spec.
