TWIMC:  Folks from the XML Core WG are working on an XML Resource
Identifier RFC.  XRIs allow various characters from the ASCII range;
translation to URIs is done by %-escaping them.  Thus "[" is a valid
XRI reference, translating to the URI reference "%5B".  XRIs are used
(though not by that name) in XML system identifiers and in XLink so far;
they can only be used where the surrounding format or protocol provides
for delimiting and escaping, e.g. in XML attributes.

Note that these are not the XRIs of the OASIS TC.
