Hi Tom,
I have sympathy with you, but that should be addressed by the core
Here we are trying to address potential inconsistency between the primer
and the core spec. Given that the core spec has already adopted IRIs, do
you still think that it's OK for the primer to use URIs every where,
especially section 5.6?

Best Regards,

	Huge +1.


	I can't tell you how annoyed I am that the term URI (which most
people are only barely getting used to) is being replaced by "IRI".
Most user unfriendly and we should avoid the term like the plague.



	And I still don't like these new fangled push-button phones
either.  Hrrrumph.  :-)
