Sorry, how's that a far cry from what I said?

XML Base currently
1) uses a circumscriptive definition of (LE)IRIs similar (actually identical)
   to the one in the XML spec.
2) the XML Core WG apparently thinks that they do not want to exclude
   characters allowed in LEIRIs but not in IRIs with a technical correction.
