RFCs are subject to an unpredictable delay between the time they are
approved and the time they are published with an RFC number, typically
months.  Nothing can be done about this.

No.  The "L" in "LEIRI" stands for "Legacy"; the LEIRI definition
simply collects under one roof the existing anything-goes definitions
of URI-like objects in older specs (XML 1.0 system identifiers, XLinks,
XML Schema anyURIs, etc.)
