      Comment (received 2002-07-12) -- Converting to RFC-2396-style URIs

      We note with some alarm that section 8 of the specification no longer
contains an account of any algorithm for converting internationalized
resource identifiers into uniform resource identifiers as defined by RFC
2396 and widely implemented. We believe that the algorithm which was
presented in the first last-call draft should be restored, in order to allow
other W3C specifications to refer to it as needed. (Note that the XML Schema
1.0 Recommendation does refer readers to section 8 of this document for
information about conversion problems -- information which this version of
the document no longer provides.) We do not believe the reference to section
2.2.5 of RFC 2718 serves as an adequate substitute: RFC 2718 is
informational, not normative, and its account of the algorithm presupposes
more familiarity with the family of URI specifications than it is reasonable
to assume, even of writers of W3C specifications.
    *

      Decision: Partially accepted.

      Rationale: Our plan is that the IRI Internet-Draft, referenced in this
section, will have been submitted for Proposed Standard by the time CharMod
moves to the next stage (CR). Conversion from IRIs to URIs is fully
addressed in the IRI spec, and is needed there, and should therefore not be
duplicated in charmod.

      The reference to RFC 2718 is informative only. To make this clearer,
we have moved it out of the actual conformance criterion (C060) into a
separate sentence reading "This is in accordance with Guidelines for new URL
Schemes [rfc2718] Section 2.2.5.". In any way, that part of that section
speaks about new schemas and things such as XPointer, not about 'IRI slots'
such as anyURI.
