I added this parenthetical comment into Scope [1]:

    (While this report follows common practice in emphasizing URIs, readers
    should note the increasing role of Internationalized Resource Identifiers
    (IRIs) [2] as multilingual Web addresses [3] that support non-Latin
    scripts.) 

For the benefit of non-LLD-XG members: The Scope statement is at the top of the
report [4].

Is everyone happy with this wording and these references?
