Hi there,

here's some early feedback.

"A control character is a character whose value is less than or equal to 
U+0020 (" ")."

This is really surprising; it doesn't match Unicode 
(<http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0000.pdf>) nor IETF ABNF (RFC 5234).

I think it would be better to exclude U+0020, in particular as the term 
is just only once.

A more general concern is that the spec defines various URI-related 
operations in terms of algorithms, and doesn't mention whether those 
algorithms are supposed to return the same results as those defined in 
RFC 3986 or not.

If they are not, it would be totally awesome if there was an explanation 
about what these difference are. Lacking that, this is really hard to 
review.

Best regards, Julian
