There is a new IRI working group, charter:

  http://tools.ietf.org/wg/iri/charters 


Mail discussions are on public-iri@w3.org
archives: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-iri/ 

The first F2F meeting of the IRI working group in IETF
will be Friday, March 25, at the IETF meeting in
Anaheim (www.ietf.org), but of course, as with all IETF
working groups, the primary work of the group is on the
mailing list.


One of the charter items is to insure the result
is acceptable to HTTPBIS.

I think there is a reasonable question about what the "Location"
header should be if the original IRI had non-ascii characters.

The problem is that IRI -> URI is a lossy transformation
in general -- it doesn't (or shouldn't) lose the information
about how to actually access the resource, but the
"Location" header is also used for information display.
