Well, there will always be some level of normalization in these two syntaxes:
CSS's backslash escapes, at the very least, must be replaced with the actual
character. So I can't say "no normalization", but I can reinforce that URI
normalization doesn't apply to the string syntax either. I've added "as with
the STRING syntax" to the sentence, so it now reads:

  # A URI string parsed from the <code>URI</code> syntax must be treated as
  # a literal string: as with the <code>STRING</code> syntax, no URI-specific
  # normalization is applied.

Let me know if this addresses your comment.
