That document is apparently rather old, it still mentions RFC 2396,
and it has a normative (sic!) reference to [I-D IRI].  <shudder />

It also references XML 1.0 chapter 4.2.2 claiming that I can find
provisions for IRIs there.  Checking that in XML 1.0 4th ed. it's
about the <SystemLiteral>, and the presented algorithm boils down
to "use UTF-8 and percent-encode".

That's no fair summary of RFC 3987, it's not good enough to get a
valid STD 66 URI from a given valid IRI, it doesn't mention the
IDNA issue.   And for crying out loud, there's also no RFC 3987
reference in XML 1.0 4th ed. published only months ago.  <sigh />
