I will respond at greater length in due course on the vexed question
of balanced parentheses in URIs, but the above comment needs to be
rebutted more quickly, if it is intended to be an assertion that
XPointer is unimplemented, hence a bad precedent.

It does, however, include a pointer to an implementation report [1],
which Chris must have just missed, a few lines down from the top, with
the words "Check the Implementation Chart."  It cites a substantial
number of implementations.

(Note that the XML Linking WG was wound up 8 months ago, and that page
is not being maintained.)

The decision to go to PR and REC with XPointer was supported by a
contextualised version of the XPointer part of that report [2].
