Does CSS allow IRIs to be used inside url() values?

data:text/html;charset=utf-8;base64,PCFkb2N0eXBlIGh0bWw%2BPGJvZHkgc3R5bGU9ImJhY2tncm91bmQtaW1hZ2U6IHVybChodHRwOi8vcsOka3Ntw7ZyZ8Olcy5qb3NlZnNzb24ub3JnL3Jha3Ntb3JnYXMuanBnIj4%3D

seems to work in various browsers.  zcorpan pointed out to me that 
css3-syntax should parse the entire url(...iri...) into a URI token, but 
I don't see anything in http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-values/#urls that 
says how to interpret the bit of the token between the parens and the 
optional quotes (i.e. as a URI, an IRI, or something else).
