Of course the WG aims to comply with WebArch.  We just don't think
this is a WebArch issue.  XLink is a spec which relies on conformant
implementations of RFCs it references.  XLink _itself_ is not an
implementation of 3986.

We have chosen not to incorporate by reference 3986's grammar for
URIs, but any conformant implementation of 3986, i.e. the URI/http
library _used_ by an XLink implementation, should of course conform to
WebArch in this regard, and not, for example, recover silently from

So we don't propose any further changes in this area, beyond the one
Norm already committed to early in this thread.  Please let us know if
you wish for us to record your formal objection with respect to this
issue when we request CR status, or whether you can live with the text
as Norm proposed to modify it.
