Comment about:

  Web Services Description Language (WSDL) Version 2.0 Part 0: Primer
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-wsdl20-primer-20050803/

The primer talks exclusively about URIs. It should talk about IRIs
some. The primer is probably a good place to mention that for
internationalization purposes, WSDL 2.0 supports IRIs which are a
superset of URIs.

It might be useful to point to An Introduction to Multilingual Web
Addresses[1] which explains what IRIs are, how they differ from URIs,
why they exist, etc.

Cheers,

Hugo
