Yes - if "]" is allowed as the last character in a given URI. I don't think
that "[" is allowed as a prefix, looking at the RFC, but "]" could cause
problems.

So, what characters are there that are not legal as the first or last
characters of any given URI, but are legal in text in XML??? We could use
any character(s) that fits that description.
