There are other specifications which rely on XML Schema 1.0 and also 
support IRIs. An example are XPath 2 F/O, see 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/REC-xpath-functions-20070123/#uri :
[Within this specification, the term "URI" refers to Universal Resource 
Identifiers as defined in [RFC 3986] and extended in [RFC 3987] with a 
new name "IRI". [...] Note also that the definition of xs:anyURI is a 
wider definition than the definition in [RFC 3987]; for example it does 
not require non-ASCII characters to be escaped.]

I think the statement above makes clear that your assumption "XML Schema 
1.0 second ed., which does not appear to support all IRIs in the 
xsd:anyURI type. ", is not true.

Hence, I would disagree with your resolution. We will discuss this issue 
at our i18n core call next week (18 Sept.) and will provide you with a 
Working Group reply (which should not stop you from replying to my mail, 
but please keep public-i18n-core in the loop).
