It doesn't make sense to me.  I think HRRI should be Proposed Standard,
the same as IRI.  

(New RFCs are always one of Proposed Standard, BCP, FYI, Experimental,
and Informational.  Proposed Standard can be changed to Draft Standard
and later to Standard; any RFC can become Historic or just be obsoleted
by another RFC.)

I guess that depends on whether the dereferencing software
speaks URI or HRRI.  If URI, then obviously the encoding has
to be done before passing it in.
