Thanks, Richard. It does indeed currently refer to them simly as IRIs, and points to RFC 3987 for the definition. It does also normatively refer to XLink; but it also says what the type of the attributes are rather than "they are whatever Xlink says" because, for one thing, we have a DOM while XLink does not specify one.
