The ID says something about becoming a BCP (Best Current Practice).

Did you mean this?

We notice that the quoted phrase above is in XLink 1.1, but
we're having trouble remembering why we put those words in.

It (now) seems to some of us that it may be reasonable
for the process passing an HRRI to dereferencing software
to do the percent encoding.

Martin's email says:

 [the quoted phrase] may suggest that resolution interfaces come
 with three different entry points. I think it would be better
 to have done this work by the XML side when resolving something. 

Do either of you remember the history of this phrase and/or
have any thoughts on this issue?
