Thanks, Martin. I'll add this to our list of items to approve.

In general, the I18N Core WG supports to adoption of IRI in place of URI 
in XML specifications, so I think it likely that this will garner 
general support in the working group.

Internationalization is an architecture.
It is not a feature.
