IIRC, the WG was not prepared to do a global search and replace of URI
for IRI in the primer, as URIs are a familiar concept and in almost all
cases in the Primer the term is good enough.  Having one statement
pointing out that our use of URI instead of IRI is a simplification
should be sufficient.  We can confirm this on this week's call if I've
misrepresented the WG's decision.

Hi Hugo, Hi Jonathan,


While working on proposing changes to the primer to implement your
suggestions in LC303 [1], I realize that we may also need to do a global
search in the Primer to replace the term URI with IRI to be consistent
with the core spec, in addition to adding a brief introduction to IRI as
you suggested.


However, I  notice that the resolution of LC74a [2] , which caused the
URI to IRI changes in Part 1 and 2,  contains a few exemptions. The
resolution of LC74a says <quote>Change URI to IRI throughout except URI
attr and prop on featiures and properties and SOAP module, which becomes
"ref"; exempt appendix E where we talk about namespace URIs, and section
4.11.2 in adjunct spec.</quote>.  


It's not clear to me what the last two exemptions really are since
section "Appendix E" and "section 4.11.2 in adjunct specs" are
completely changed/removed in the current version of the spec. In

	*	If I recall it right, the former Part 1  appendix E is
now part of the Primer section 5.6 [3] which talks about namespace URIs.
Does the exemption for "Appendix E" in LC74a mean that namespace URI
should not be changed to IRI? if so, why?
	*	I have no idea what the "adjunct section 4.11.2" was, do
you know what  the exemption for "section 4.11.2" is?
