Hi, 

<http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-modularization/abstraction.html#dt_URI>
claims that the type anyURI in XMLSCHEMA "includes what is now
referred to as an \"IRI\" [RFC3987]."

This is of course not the case, not all IRIs are URIs, RFC 3987 did
not update or obsolete STD 66, RFC 3987 is a "proposed standard" and
by definition (in RFC 2026) "immature" (in fact the author started
to work on 3987bis), and the XMLSCHEMA reference in the WD got this
right, see <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#anyURI>

Arguably the XMLSCHEMA references to RFC 2396 as amended by RFC 2732
could be updated to reference to STD 66, but actually STD 66 already
obsoletes RFC 2396 and RFC 2732.
