I think there is a problem with this interpretation. This document uses the term "RDF URI" as an umbrella for URI [with reference to obsolete RFC 2396] along with an anticipated IRI specification. The current RFCs [RFC 3986 and RFC 3987] don't seem to oblige this umbrella use of "URI" outside an RDF context.
