Section 8.3 [http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-widgets-20090528/#attribute-types]

Section 8.3 (Attribute Types) contains a subsection called "URI Attribute" which is relevant to our comment above. It says:


 An attribute defined as containing a valid URI. A valid URI is one that matches the URI token of the [URI] specification or the IRI token of the [RFC3987] specification. The value of this kind of attribute is retrieved using the rule for getting a single attribute value. --

 This is problematical, since all URIs are IRIs, but not the converse. We think this should favor IRI and note the relationship to URI.
