Couple of questions, if I may.

What is the timescape for RFC 3987bis? I see its at draft 2
http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-duerst-iri-bis-02.txt
published 18 Dec 2007. When is it expected to become an RFC? I assume (given the wording above) that this is not expected to happen before 30 June, but how long after that? 

Is the same change (to reference RFC 3987bis) expected to be made to XLink 1.1?

Should specifications that currently use IRI in XML specify LEIRI instead?

Since this email is public I also added Martin Dürst and Michel Signard, editors of RFC 3987bis, in cc.
